Wingate denial of service Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Acertains if Wingate is vulnerable to a buffer attack
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote Wingate service
can be forced to connect to itself continually
until it runs out of buffers. When this happens,
the telnet proxy service will be disabled.
A possible hacker may block your telnet proxy this
way, thus preventing your system from working
properly if you need telnet. A possible hacker may also
use this flaw to force your systems to use another
proxy which may be under the attacker's control.
Solution : configure WinGate so that
only authorized users can use it.
Threat Level: Low
