Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for denial of service vulnerability in WindWeb <= 2.0
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote web server is prone to denial of service attacks.
The remote host appears to be running the WindWeb web server, which is
found on embedded devices running Wind River Systems' VxWorks such as
certain ADSL modems and routers.
The version of WindWeb installed on the remote host is affected by a
remote denial of service vulnerability when it receives
maliciously-crafted requests. A possible hacker may be able to leverage
this issue to deny access to the web server to legitimate users.
