Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

This script checks whether the remote host is running the Hacker

specially-crafted packet, and opening a backdoor on that port when
found. This backdoor can be used by malicious users to control the
affected host remotely.

Solution: Reinstall Windows.
Risk factor: Critical
