LogMeIn Listening Server Detection

Info Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3790

Synopsis

The remote client is a LogMeIn server awaiting remote connection.

Description

The remote client is a LogMeIn server awaiting remote connection. LogMeIn is an application that allows users to access their computers (work or home) from anywhere in the world via a web browser. LogMeIn works by installing an agent on the computer that is to be accessed remotely. The application then establishes a client connection to an Internet server and allows the user to connect over the established HTTPS connection. As such, LogMeIn has the ability to bypass firewalls and proxies.

Solution

Ensure that such usage is in alignment with corporate policies and guidelines regarding remote access.
