Checkpoint SecuRemote information leakage

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checkpoint SecuRemote information leakage

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host seems to be a Checkpoint FireWall-1 running SecuRemote.
The SecuRemote service contains a vulnerability that permits attackers
to gain information about the hosts, networks, and users configured on
the Firewall.

This will enable attackers to focus their attack strategy.

You should not let this information leak out.

Solution:
Either block the SecuRemote's ports (TCP 256 and 264) to untrusted networks,
or upgrade to the latest version of Checkpoint's Firewall-1.

Workaround:
You could restrict the topology download, so that only authenticated
users can download it.
Go to Policy Properties Desktop Security of your Policy Editor and
uncheck 'respond to unauthenticated topology requests'.
After installing the Policy only authenticated Users can download
the Topology.

Network Security Threat Level: Medium
