REJECT DO NOT USE THIS CANDIDATE NUMBER. ConsultIDs: None. Reason: this candidate is solely about a configuration that does not directly introduce security vulnerabilities, so it is more appropriate to cover under the Common Configuration Enumeration (CCE). Notes: the former description is: "The TFTP service is running." This Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) entry is a configuration issue and not a software flaw. As such, it doesn’t fit in the CVE software flaw list. The Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score for this CVE entry has been set to 0 because this CVE entry has no impact as a software flaw according to CVSS. This does not mean that the configuration issue is not important and there may be security implications relative to computers having this configuration. The TFTP Service is an unsecured protocol and it should used only on a limited basis on rare occasion to provide a specific functional requirement, otherwise disabled. Secure alternatives are available.
