Xerox Document Centre Denial of Service (DoS)

High

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DoS) attack.

Description

The remote host is running Xerox Document Centre, an administrative, web-based GUI to a Xerox device. This version is reportedly prone to a remote Denial of Service (DoS) attack. An attacker exploiting this flaw would only need to be able to send malformed HTTP requests to the web interface of the printer. A successful attack would result in a loss of availability to the users of the printer.

Solution

Upgrade or patch according to vendor recommendations.
