TCP sequence number approximation

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for TCP approximations on the remote host

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

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...).
