File firewall-bypass

Script types: hostrule
Categories: vuln, intrusive
Download: http://nmap.org/svn/scripts/firewall-bypass.nse

User Summary

Detects a vulnerability in netfilter and other firewalls that use helpers to dynamically open ports for protocols such as ftp and sip.

The script works by spoofing a packet from the target server asking for opening a related connection to a target port which will be fulfilled by the firewall through the adequate protocol helper port. The attacking machine should be on the same network segment as the firewall for this to work. The script supports ftp helper on both IPv4 and IPv6. Real path filter is used to prevent such attacks.

Based on work done by Eric Leblond.
