This event is generated when an attempt is made to exploit a known
vulnerability on a web server or a web application resident on a web
Information gathering and system integrity compromise. Possible unauthorized
administrative access to the server. Possible execution of arbitrary code of
the attackers choosing in some cases.
This event is generated when an attempt is made to compromise a host
running a Web server or a vulnerable application on a web server.
Many known vulnerabilities exist for each implementation and the
attack scenarios are legion.
Some applications do not perform stringent checks when validating the
credentials of a client host connecting to the services offered on a
host server. This can lead to unauthorized access and possibly escalated
privileges to that of the administrator. Data stored on the machine can
be compromised and trust relationships between the victim server and
other hosts can be exploited by the attacker.
Ease of Attack:
Simple. Exploits exist.
What To Look For
No public information
No known false positives
