Vulnerability Assessment Details

TCP sequence number approximation

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for TCP approximations on the remote host

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host might be vulnerable to a sequence number approximation
bug, which may permit a possible hacker to send spoofed RST packets to the remote
host and close established connections.

This may cause problems for some dedicated services (BGP, a VPN over
TCP, etc...).
