Open Web Proxy Server

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Acertains if we can use the remote web proxy

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web proxy server accepts requests.

Description :

The remote web proxy accepts unauthenticated HTTP requests from the
Nessus scanner. By routing requests through the affected proxy, a
user may be able to gain some degree of anonymity while browsing web
sites, which will see requests as originating from the remote host
itself rather than the user's host.

Solution:

Reconfigure the remote proxy so that it only accepts requests coming
from inside your network.
