EMC AutoStart ftAgent Version Detection

This script is Copyright (C) 2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

It is possible to obtain the version number of the remote EMC
AutoStart Agent Service.

Description :

The version number of the EMC AutoStart ftAgent can be obtained by
sending it a series of ftAgent-specific packets.

Note that a valid AutoStart domain name is required. This script uses
a list of default domains as well as the one learned from the
heartbeat packets sent from the remote host to a multicast address.
If the Nessus scanner is not on the same LAN segment as the remote
host and the AutoStart default domain name has been changed, this
plugin will not be able to obtain the AutoStart ftAgent version.
Therefore, to achieve optimal results, it's advised, if possible, to
place the Nessus scanner on the same LAN segment as the AutoStart
node.
