    We can create a dummy command(ErrorCommand extends AbstractFourLetterCommand ) and execute
it and return true same way as SetTraceMaskCommand 
    This ErrorCommand will take care rest of the thing, sending any error message to client
and closing the connection etc.

> The wchp/wchc four letter words can be exploited in a DOS attack on the ZK client port
- typically 2181. The following POC attack was recently published on the web:

> The most straightforward way to block this attack is to not allow access to the client
port to non-trusted clients - i.e. firewall the ZooKeeper service and only allow access to
trusted applications using it for coordination.
