Checks for multiple vulnerabilities in AttachmateWRQ Reflection for Secure IT Server < 6.0 build 24
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote SSH server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
The remote host is running AttachmateWRQ Reflection for Secure IT
Server, a commercial SSH server for Windows.

insensitive. This may let a possible hacker gain access
to an otherwise restricted account by logging in
using a variation on the account name.
- A Renamed Account Remote Login Vulnerability
The application continues to accept valid public keys
for authentication to the the Administrator or Guest
accounts if either has been renamed or disabled after
being configured for SSH public key authentication,
- An Information Disclosure Vulnerability

private key, which can lead to host impersonation attacks.
