Info Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3297

Synopsis

The remote host is running the HTTPrint scanning software.

Description

The remote host is running the HTTPrint scanning software. HTTPrint is used to enumerate and fingerprint HTTP servers. With any scanner software, there will always be the risk of interruption of services due to scanning. As HTTPrint uses some non-standard HTTP commands, it may cause some web servers to fail. Further, if the tool is used against a non-HTTP service, it can also cause availability issues.

Solution

Ensure that this software is being used in accordance with corporate policies and guidelines.
