WinGate Passwordless Default Installation
High Nessus Plugin ID 10309
SynopsisThe remote service may allow an access control breach.
DescriptionWingate is a program that allows a Windows98 computer to act as a proxy.
Unfortunately, the default configuration is too permissive and allows anyone to use this computer to connect anywhere, thus hiding the real IP address.
This WinGate server does not ask for any passwords, and thus can be used by an attacker from anywhere as a telnet relay.
SolutionAdjust the WinGate configuration.
