Synopsis :

Gnutella and OpenFT. As such, it may not be suitable for use in a
business environment.

In addition, note that it's not possible for Nessus to determine the
installed version of Ares Fileshare and that some versions suffer from
remotely exploitable vulnerabilities
eg, Bugtraq 14377.

This product has been discontinued and is no longer supported.
