Vulnerability Assessment Details

Passwordless Wingate installed

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Acertains if wingate is installed

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
Wingate is a program that permits
a Windows98 computer to act as a proxy.
Unfortunately, the default configuration is too
permissive and permits anyone to use this computer
to connect anywhere, thus hiding his real IP address.

This WinGate server does not ask for any
password, and thus can be used by a possible hacker
from anywhere as a telnet relay.

Solution : check the WinGate configuration.

Network Security Threat Level: High
