DameWare Mini Remote Control Authentication Credentials Persistence Weakness

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains an application that is affected by
an information disclosure issue.

Description :

According to its version number, the copy of DameWare Mini Remote
Control installed on the remote host allows a local user to recover
authentication credentials because the application stores sensitive
information in memory as plaintext - username, password, hostname,
etc in the case of the 'DWRCC' client process and username (but not
password) and authentication type in the case of the 'DWRCS' server
process.
