Vulnerability Assessment Details

Proxy accepts CONNECT requests

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

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The proxy permits the users to perform
CONNECT requests like
CONNECT http://cvs.nessus.org:23

This request give to the person who make it the ability
to have an interactive session.

This problem may permit attackers to go through your
firewall, by connecting to sensitive ports like 23 (telnet)
using your proxy, or it can permit internal users to bypass the firewall
rules and connect to ports they should not be permited to.

In addition to that, your proxy may be used to perform attacks against
other networks.

Solution: reconfigure your proxy so that it refuses CONNECT requests.
