SynopsisThe remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
DescriptionThe remote host is running a version of the Gaia Operating System which is affected by a vulnerability. Administrators who set their password while firmware R77.20.85, R77.20.86 or R77.20.87 (< Build 990172921) were installed can authenticate to the SMB appliance using only the first 8 characters. This is because administrator passwords which were created or changed while using the affected firmware versions are enforced with a weaker password hash algorithm than previous versions.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionApply the relevant patch and fix referenced in the vendor advisory.
