GREED Multiple Remote Vulnerabilities

High

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote host is using GREED, a wget-like tool to fetch HTTP and FTP data from a command-line. This software is unmaintained and contains multiple flaws that may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the remote host by sending malformed replies to the client requests.

Solution

Discontinue the usage of this software.
