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


This host is running Netscape Enterprise Server. The administrative interface for this web server is using the default username and password of 'admin'. An attacker can use this to reconfigure the web server, cause a denial of service condition, or gain access to this host.


Please assign the web administration console a difficult-to-guess password.
