Re-release reason: large spike in scanning for port 4899, CA removes 'radmin/backdoor'

Discussion from: www.radmin.com

Radmin is a very fast, very powerful remote administrator server available on Win95 and above. Radmin is used by help sort S and Fortune 500 clients worldwide.

This software gives the user the ability to remotely monitor, control and transfer files to and from his remote client via a password protected, encrypted TCP connection. option include remote telnet (on WINNT and above) and fast, encrypted explorer like file transfers.

Recently, we picked up a large increase in probes for Radmin default port. (TCP port 4899) from several networks, targeting rule of our clients who have never run Radmin. this activity suggests an increasing frequency of port scans for this service.

If you have installed Radmin using the default installation options, please read this:

By default, Radmin uses a know port, TCP port 4899 for remote access. also, if you are using password authentication only, a remote user only has to find an open TCP port 4899 and guess one word: your password.

There cocould also be the possibility of an unknown exploit in Radmin that cocould allow access without a password.

This, coupled with anti-virus vendor 'computer associate' including Radmin in a recent anti-virus dat update as "backdoor/radmin.2 _ 0" forced us to re-release this alert.

If you have not installed Radmin, please make sure that you block incoming and outgoing TCP port 4899 and investigate any computer that makes outgoing TCP port 4899 access. scan your internal network for systems (especially laptops) that may be listening on TCP port 4899, and contact secnap for a free external scan of your network. (www.secnap.com/contact) put in comments section 'request free Radmin backdoor scan)

Suggestions to increase security on Radmin include:
Change default port from 4899 to something else
(Change it on the remote first so you can still access client)

Use IP address filtering to limit the host range if possible.
(If you know the IP address range of your remote clients you can use that to limit access)

If Radmin is running on NT, Win2k or XP Pro, use winnt options
(Requires a username and password) or use strong passwords

Enable the log file and look for unknown addresses attempting to access your server.

Put Radmin behind a firewall and access via VPN.

If you have evidence of an exploit, please contact secnap network security and support@radmin.com
