Passwordless Wingate installed Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Acertains if wingate is installed
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
Wingate is a program that allows
a Windows98 computer to act as a proxy.
Unfortunately, the default configuration is too
permissive and allows anyone to use this computer
to connect anywhere, thus hiding his real IP address.
This WinGate server does not ask for any
password, and thus can be used by a possible hacker
from anywhere as a telnet relay.
Solution : check the WinGate configuration.
Threat Level: High
