SynopsisThe remote application allows attackers to 'bounce' attacks against other networks.
DescriptionThe remote host is running VisualRoute, a web server allowing anyone to perform a traceroute interactively. An attacker may use this interface to perform traceroutes on third party hosts without being noticed, therefore using a VisualRoute server as a relay for their discoveries.
