Chargen Server Detection (UDP)

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host may be used to attack other hosts.

Description

A chargen server is running on this port on top of UDP. An attacker may use spoofed UDP packets to use this server to set up a 'ping pong' attack that would use this service to attack a third party host.

Solution

Disable the service.
