Vulnerability Assessment Details

Identd enabled

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks if identd is installed

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is running an ident (also known as 'auth') daemon.

The 'ident' service provides sensitive information to potential
attackers. It mainly says which accounts are running which services.
This helps attackers to focus on valuable services (those
owned by root). If you do not use this service, disable it.

Solution : Under Unix systems, comment out the 'auth' or 'ident'
line in /etc/inetd.conf and restart inetd

Network Security Threat Level: Low
