FastStream Web Server HEAD DoS

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for version of FastStream NetFile

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is running a version of the FastStream Web server
which is older or as old as version 7.1.

The remote version of this software does not close the connection when
an HTTP HEAD request is received with the keep-alive option set. A possible hacker
may exploit this flaw by sending multiple HEAD requests to the remote host,
thus consuming all its file descriptors until it does not accept connections
any more.
