Security Issues and Fixes: base-station.local
Type Port Issue and Fix
Informational general/tcp The remote host is up
Nessus ID : 10180
Informational general/tcp HTTP NIDS evasion functions are enabled.
You may get some false negative results
Nessus ID : 10890
Informational general/tcp resolves as base-station.local.
Nessus ID : 12053
Informational general/tcp The remote host is running Apple Airport 3.84
Nessus ID : 11936
Warning unknown (5009/tcp)
The remote host is an Apple Airport Wireless Access Point which
can be administrated on top of TCP port 5009.

There is a design flaw in the administrative protocol which makes
the clients which connect to this port send the password
in plain text (although slightly obsfuscated).

An attacker who has the ability to sniff the data going to this
device may use this flaw to gain its administrative password and
gain its control. Since the airport base station does not keep any
log, it will be difficult to determine that administrative access
has been stolen.

Solution : Block incoming traffic to this port, and only administer
this base station when connected to it using a cross-over ethernet
