Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Paros: Default administrator password

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200601-15

Andrew Christensen discovered that in older versions of Paros the
database component HSQLDB is installed with an empty password for the
database administrator "sa".

Impact

Since the database listens globally by default, a possible hacker can
connect and issue arbitrary commands, including execution of binaries
installed on the host.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
