Can you provide more information on the DOS? What tool is generating this? And against what? Any reference or pcap?

The text is in Arabic, though its contains some malformed Arabic characters. The top level characters are used to control pronunciation of words. Again, some of them are malformed. And some of them are wrongly used; if I am reading it write (see below).

I am not sure if it is a coincidence, but the word
Means highness; but the top level character in the middle is mistakenly used in the context of the word. The other word:
Means Emirati; translated as an Emirate citizen. Although the word spelled wrong based on the official written Arabic language - I have seen people writing it this way.

Some other letters are valid but their construction as a word does not mean anything such و، ح، خ

The rest are symbols not used/related to Arabic.

Hope this helps. May be if there is more information I can help better.

Hello.  Whoops, I accidentily sent the last email early (still getting used
to the new GMAIL interface and hit the wrong key-board combination for my
new key-board layout).  Anyway, here is the string:

سمَـَّوُوُحخ ̷̴̐خ ̷̴̐خ ̷̴̐خ امارتيخ ̷̴̐خ

Does anyone know why this happens and what other combination or sub-strings
can be used to exploit this? I ask so that we can make a SNORT rule for
it.  From my reading this is DoS and no RCE or BO that is known of.
