DescriptionThe product does not properly check inputs that are used for
loop conditions, potentially leading to a denial of service because of
excessive looping. This test will try to access a user-controlled file,
repeatedly trying if the access fails. The user provides an intentionally
bad path, forcing the software to wait forever.
