WinGate Telnet Proxy Server Detection

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is running an inherently insecure protocol or application.

Description

The remote host is running a Wingate Telnet Proxy server. If not configured securely, a Wingate Telnet Proxy server may be used by hackers to conceal their true origins by bouncing conections through these proxies.

Solution

Uninstall the server if not necessary; otherwise ensure connections to the proxy are only made by trusted hosts.
