The remote host contains an application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Microsoft ISA Server or Forefront Threat Management Gateway installed on the remote host is affected by one or both of the following vulnerabilities :

- By sending a series of specially crafted packets, an anonymous remote attacker can create orphaned open sessions in the firewall engine, thereby denying service to legitimate users. (CVE-2009-0077)

- A non-persistent cross-site scripting vulnerability exists in the application due to its failure to sanitize input to its 'cookieauth.dll' script. (CVE-2009-0237)
