Ask your CICS support people. I don't know exactly what you mean, but it sounds like something you shouldn't try yourself, particularly with information lifted off the web.

Should this not be in the Interview Questions section and not CICS?

There are several levels of looping transactions
1. loops that include CICS interactions
1a. if the site has a CICS montor, the monitor can be used to kill the task
1b. if the site does not have CICS monitor, the task may be cancelled from another terminal (use CEMT I TAS) to identify the task to kill).
2. loops that do not include CICS interactions
2a. if the site has a CICS monitor, try to kill the task using the monitor
2b. if the site does not have a CICS monitor, the CICS region may need to be killed and restarted.
2c. if the site does not have a CICS monitor and only one processor in the machine, an IPL may be required to reset the system
