The remote host is running a web application that is affected by a session hijacking vulnerability.


The Trend Micro Smart Protection Server running on the remote host is affected by a session hijacking vulnerability due to the disclosure of session IDs in the diagnostic.log file that can be accessed via HTTP without authentication. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can grab the log file and hijack active user sessions to perform authenticated requests.

Note that the product is reportedly affected by other vulnerabilities; however, this plugin has not tested for them.
