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.

This vulnerability was reported by CIRT, Danish Computer Incident Response Team. (,
