New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote system is a SIP signaling device.

Description

The remote system is running software that speaks the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP).

SIP is a messaging protocol to initiate communication sessions between systems. It is a protocol used mostly in IP Telephony networks / systems to setup, control, and teardown sessions between two or more systems.

Solution

If possible, filter incoming connections to the port so that it is used only by trusted sources.
