The remote host has an application installed that is affected by a
denial of service vulnerability.
According to its self-reported version number, the installation of
MikroTik Winbox hosted on the remote web server is affected by a
denial of service vulnerability. An unauthenticated, remote attacker
may make multiple requests to download a large file, resulting in the
service becoming unresponsive. Successful attacks can disconnect all
Winbox clients, and make the service unresponsive for several minutes.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied
only on the application's self-reported version number.
