Check Point Firewall-1 Session Agent Dictionary Attack Vulnerability

A vulnerability exists in all versions of the Check Point Session Agent, part of Firewall-1. Session Agent works in such a way that the firewall will establish a connection back to the client machine. Upon doing so, it will prompt for a username, and if the username exists, a password. Upon failure, it will reprompt indefinitely. This allows for a simple brute force attack against the username and password.
