pci compliance scan failing

Posted on 2012-12-20
Last Modified: 2013-01-31
We have a pci compliance report that fails with the below message.  OWA is being used from the outside so closing 443 from the outside is not an option.  I saw a patch, but that was already included in sp2 (which they have).  Anyone have any other suggestions that they've come across for a fix to this.   (apart from password protecting logon.aspx---as it would create another level of logging in).   Thanks
