Wyse Device Manager Default FTP Account

critical Nessus Plugin ID 40332
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote FTP server has an account that is protected with default credentials.


The remote FTP server has an account with a known username / password combination, possibly created as part of an installation of Wyse Device Manager. An attacker may be able to use this to gain authenticated access to the system, which could allow for other attacks against the affected application and host.


Change the password associated with the reported username.
