Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server
Novell Nsure Audit 1.0.1
Security Vulnerability against webadmin.exe
Windows server will stop responding
Webadmin.exe will listen on port 449 and a brute force attack on this port can cause the Windows server to stop responding.
Nsure Audit 1.0.2 and Nsure Audit 1.0.3 are not vulnerable to this attack. It is recommended to update Nsure Audit to 1.0.3. These newer versions do not use webadmin.exe instead they use a snapin for imanager for management purposes.
