The Web proxy service (W3proxy.exe) may crash (that is, experience an access violation) when it processes an HTTP redirect action on a site and content rule that denies access.
ISA Server may not include the NULL terminating byte when ISA Server copies the redirect URL to a temporary buffer. Because of this, more HTTP header data may be sent back to the client in the redirect response, and sometimes the Web proxy service may crash.
