Check for discard Service

Use this category for: Check for discard Service Port 9/tcp

I have a problem where the Discard Service Vulnerability appears on the phone and the Severity is 10 and Cisco informs me that it is False Positive. I wanted to know why Greenbone detects this with a Severity 10.

I migrated this topic to Vulnerability tests since I believe that is the correct category.

Hi and welcome to the community!

The associated CVE (CVE-1999-0636) has the CVSS score of 10.0. I agree that this is a too high score but then again why is Cisco still having this outdated/unneeded service running. Might be worth to try to convince Cisco to disable this service by default.


Good morning,
Please, could someone tell me how I can configure the QoD so that it appears in the reports I make in my monthly scan.

Thank you
