Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.10193
Category:Firewalls
Title:Usable remote proxy on any port
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The proxy, allows everyone to perform requests
against arbitrary ports, like
'GET http://cvs.nessus.org:110'.
This problem may allow attackers to go through your
firewall, by connecting to sensitive ports like 25 (sendmail)
using your proxy. In addition to that, your proxy may be used
to perform attacks against other networks.

Solution: reconfigure your proxy so that it only accepts
connections against non-dangerous ports (> 1024).
