HIP service uses 100 percent CPU when the endpoint website address contains "http://"

Consider the following scenario:
  • You create a new Host Initiated Processing (HIP) service. 
  • The service uses an HTTP endpoint.
  • You set a website as the local computer endpoint. 
  • The website address resembles the following:
  • You start the new HIP service.

In this scenario, the new HIP service seems to start. But the CPU spikes to 100 percent. You can verify this in Task Manager for this particular process.
The Http Listener fails if hipservice.exe.config contains something other than localhost (or, for example, contoso.com) for the website entry. 
The fix for this problem is included in cumulative update package 3 for Host Integration Server 2013. For more information about how to get the cumulative update package, see Cumulative update package 3 for Host Integration Server 2013.
