Check Point FireWall-1 Identification

Synopsis :

The remote firewall is leaking information.

Description :

The remote host has the three TCP ports 256, 257, and 258
open. It's very likely that this host is a Check Point FireWall/1.
A remote attacker could use this information to mount further attacks.

Solution :

Do not allow any connections on the firewall itself, except for the
firewall protocol, and allow that for trusted sources only.

If you have a router that performs packet filtering, add an ACL
that disallows the connection to these ports for unauthorized

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0

Family: Firewalls
