Raptor Firewall 6.5 HTTP Proxy Detection

medium Nessus Plugin ID 10730


A firewall / HTTP proxy is running in front of the remote web server.


Raptor FW 6.5 appears to be running in front of the remote web server. By sending an invalid HTTP request to a web server behind the Raptor firewall, the HTTP proxy itself will respond. The server banner of Raptor FW version 6.5 is always 'Simple, Secure Web Server 1.1'. A remote attacker could use this information to mount further attacks.


Patch httpd / httpd.exe by hand.
