Sun Cobalt Adaptive Firewall Detection

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Sun Cobalt Adaptive Firewall Detection

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Sun Cobalt machines contain a firewall mechanism, this mechanism can be
configured remotely by accessing Cobalt's built-in HTTP server. Upon access to
the HTTP server, a java based administration program would start, where a user
is required to enter a pass phrase in order to authenticate himself. Since no
username is required, just a passphrase bruteforcing of this interface is
easier.

Solution :
Access to this port (by default set to port 8181) should not be permitted from
the outside. Further access to the firewall interface itself should not be
permited (by default set to port 2005).

Network Security Threat Level: Medium
