ListManager with MSDE Weak sa Password Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for weak sa password vulnerability in ListManager with MSDE

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote database server uses a weak password for one of its
administrative accounts.

Description :

The remote host appears to be running ListManager, a web-based
commercial mailing list management application from Lyris.

The version of ListManager on the remote host was installed using
Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine (MSDE) for its database backend
along with a weak password for the 'sa' account - 'lyris' followed by
up to 5 digits. A possible hacker may be able to discover this password by
means of a brute-force attack and gain administrative access to the
database.
