The remote host has an application installed that allows unauthorized
access to the system.
The remote host is running eDirectory, a popular directory service
software from Novell.
A vulnerability in the eMBox utility included with the software
allows an unauthenticated attacker to access local files or cause a
denial of service condition.
Nessus was able to query the list of available eDirectory
services on the remote host without using any credentials, see
plugin output for more details.
