Sun Server Console Authentication Bypass Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to authenticate to Server Console as admin/admin

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server is protected with a default set of credentials.

Description :

The remote host is running the Sun ONE Server Console, which provides
an administrative interface to the Sun Java System Directory Server
installed there.

The Server Console instance on the remote host permits authentication
using a default set of credentials - 'admin' / 'admin'. This is
likely the result not of a deliberate choice during installation but
rather a flaw in the version of Directory Server used for the initial
installation.
