The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
The Web Cache Control Protocol (WCCP), available on Cisco devices,
does not provide any authentication. A router configured to support
Cache Engines will treat any host that sends it valid WCCP hello
packets as a cache engine, and may divert HTTP traffic to that host.
If a router is configured to use WCCP, an attacker can divert web
traffic passing through such a router.
