Org A NESSUS user can access the following information for specified hosts: Host machines on the network that respond and, therefore, will permit subsequent communication Servers available on the responding hosts Shared disks available through Network File System (NFS) support File access through Network Information Service (NIS), a distributed database for shared information Remote execution capability Sendmail vulnerabilities, namely, versions that may be tricked into running bad commands Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) access and configuration, which can be used to download password files Remote shell access, which provides the ability to execute commands on a different system without explicitly logging in with a password Unrestricted X Window System server, which allows the hacker to connect to the server, spy on the users on the server, obtain passwords, and “freak out” users through painting “roaches” or “smiley faces” on their screens Readable or writeable File Transfer Protocol (FTP) directory, which allows the hacker to upload commercial software or pornographic material onto corporate computing systems A specialized scanner, called host-based static auditing tools, is deployed to acquire unauthorized privileged access.

Denial of service attacks differed slightly, in that the unauthorized control was realized by overloading the victim computer so that the legitimate owner was denied the use of his or her computer.
