VisualRoute Web Server Detection

Medium

Synopsis

The remote application allows attackers to 'bounce' attacks against other networks.

Description

The 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.

Solution

Disable this server if you do not use it, or block its access on the firewall
