Vuze Detection

Info Nessus Plugin ID 50971


A file-sharing service is running on the remote port.


The remote host appears to be running Vuze, a BitTorrent client used for peer-to-peer file-sharing.

Note that, due to the peer-to-peer nature of the application, any user connecting to the P2P network may consume a large amount of bandwidth.


Make sure that the use of this program agrees with your organization's acceptable use and security policies.

Note that filtering traffic to or from this port is not a sufficient solution since the software can use a random port.
