Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote service is prone to information disclosure.
The remote host is running a 'finger' service that suffers from an
information disclosure vulnerability. Specifically, it allows an
unauthenticated attacker to display a list of accounts on the remote
host that have never been used. This list can help a possible hacker to
guess the operating system type and also focus his attacks.
