TodouVA Proxy Detection

Info Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5895

Synopsis

The remote host is operating an open proxy.

Description

The remote host is running the TodouVA proxy. The version installed accepts unauthenticated HTTP requests. By routing requests through the affected proxy, a user may be able to gain some degree of anonymity while browsing web sites, which will see requests as originating from the remote host itself rather than the user's host.

Solution

Make sure access to the proxy is limited to valid users / hosts.
