Communication over ports 8443 and 8445 not secured?

QualysGuard vulnerability scanners are alerting to vulnerabilities in ports 8443 and 8445 where the ports are allowing anonymous access over ssl. Can someone please explain why McAfee ePO 4.0 behaves in this fashion and if it is at all possible to further secure this communication? Thanks.


tomcat5.exe (2768), localhost, 8445, , 16423, TCP, Listen

tomcat5.exe (2768), localhost, 8443, , 39001, TCP, Listen

tomcat5.exe (2768), localhost, 8445, localhost, 3412, TCP, Established

EventParser.exe (2576), localhost, 3412, localhost, 8445, TCP, Established

This is an old issue, fixed in later versions of ePO. Please see KB 60412 for details.

Thanks -
