Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has an application that is affected by a
denial of service vulnerability.

Description :

McAfee E-Business Server, an enterprise tool for digitally encrypting

Server installed on the remote host reportedly fails to validate the

unauthenticated, remote attacker may be able to leverage this issue to
crash the affected service, thereby denying service to legitimate
users.
