The remote web server uses a default set of administrative credentials.


This WhatsUp Gold server still has the default password for the admin user account. An attacker can use this account to probe other systems on the network and obtain sensitive information about the monitored systems.


Login to this system and either disable the admin account or assign it a difficult to guess password.
