Synopsis :

It was possible to obtain the stack version and timestamp of the
remote Skype node.

Description :

The remote host is running Skype, a peer-to-peer Voice over Internet
Protocol (VoIP) application.

By connecting to the remote port, it is possible to query the remote
service to obtain the stack version and its timestamp.

Solution :

If this service is not needed, disable it. Note that filtering this
port will not be sufficient, since this software can establish
outgoing connections.

Risk factor :


Family: Service detection
