X Server Detection

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
X11 detection

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

A X11 server is listening on the remote host

Description :

The remote host is running a X11 server. X11 is a client-server protocol
which can be used to display graphical applications running on a given
host on a remote client.

Since the X11 traffic is not ciphered, it is possible for a possible hacker
to eavesdrop on the connection.

Solution :

Restrict access to this port. If the X11 client/server facility is not
used, disable TCP entirely.
