Info Nessus Plugin ID 45555

Synopsis

A remote management service is running on the remote host.

Description

The remote host is an Alert Standard Format (ASF) aware device that can be controlled remotely using Remote Management and Control Protocol (RMCP).

ASF is a DMTF standard that provides a remote control and alerting interface between management consoles and ASF-aware hosts.

RMCP is a network protocol used by a management console to remotely control an ASF-aware host. RMCP Security-Extensions Protocol (RSP), a security-enhanced version of RMCP, provides authentication and integrity when sending RMCP messages.

Solution

Disable this service if you do not use it, or filter incoming traffic to this port.
