Issue and Fix

Informational

ftp (21/tcp)

ftp_bounce_scan.nes could not be executed
since the remote FTP server does not allow bounce scans
(which is a good thing)
CVE : CVE-1999-0017

Warning

general/icmp


The remote host answers to an ICMP timestamp
request. This allows an attacker to know the
date which is set on your machine.

This may help him to defeat all your
time based authentication protocols.

Solution : filter out the ICMP timestamp
requests (13), and the outgoing ICMP
timestamp replies (14).

Risk factor : Low
CVE : CAN-1999-0524

Informational

general/udp

For your information, here is the traceroute to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx :
