mountd daemon is running over a non reserved port on a Windows server
Posted on 2007-04-02
I have several Windows 2000 and 2003 servers running Microsoft Windows Services for Unix 3.5 to share out a mount point for several Sun servers. Everything works just fine, but......A recent ISS Internet Security Scan showed these servers as having the following vulnerability:
MountdReserved: NFS mount daemon operating on an non-reserved port
The mountd daemon is running over a non-reserved port. This daemon is probably vulnerable to port hijacking and should be moved to a reserved port.
Does anyone know if this is a configurable parameter?
