BASE < 1.3.8 Redirect Authentication Bypass

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4076

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a flaw that allows for the bypassing of authentication.

Description

The remote host is running BASE, a web-based tool for analyzing alerts from one or more SNORT sensors.
