Microsoft Windows SMB Service Enumeration
Info Nessus Plugin ID 10456
SynopsisIt is possible to enumerate remote services.
DescriptionThis plugin implements the SvcOpenSCManager() and SvcEnumServices() calls to obtain, using the SMB protocol, the list of active and inactive services of the remote host.
An attacker may use this feature to gain better knowledge of the remote host.
SolutionTo prevent the listing of the services from being obtained, you should either have tight login restrictions, so that only trusted users can access your host, and/or you should filter incoming traffic to this port.
