Sample text

In both cases the shortcoming of the two functions is that unless you were the one generating the packet, both functions cannot display what was sent to the host being tested. Such is in the case of SMB, RPC, and others where the infrastructure of Nessus’ include files provides the support for the aforementioned protocols. In the previous two cases, SMB and RPC, your only alternative to Nessus’ debugging routines is to do either of the following: 1. Add extensive debugging code to the include files being utilized.

The value of __ka_enabled has not yet been set to any value but –1, which tells the keep-alive infrastructure it has no knowledge of whether the keep-alive mechanism is supported by the remote host. There are two main types of keep-alive implementations. In the case of Apache-like servers the response will contain a keep-alive header line. In the case of IIS-like servers the response does not contain the keep-alive header. We can therefore determine that the remote server supports the keep-alive function by sending the previous request without reopening the previously opened socket and determining whether a response has been returned.

Depending on the type of server-side script, test whether it is supported. For example, for PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor)-based server-side scripts, determine whether the remote host supports PHP scripts. ■ Determine whether the remote host is generically vulnerable to cross-site scripting; that is, any cross-site scripting attack would succeed regardless of whether the script exists or not on the remote host. ■ Try a list of possible directories where the script might be found. ■ Try a list of possible filenames for the script.
