Tiny Personal Firewall popup alert allows attacker to gain access
|tinyfw-popup-gain-access (8324)||Medium Risk|
Tiny Personal Firewall could allow an attacker to gain unauthorized access to the system. If an attacker has local access to a system running Tiny Personal Firewall, the attacker can initiate a popup alert message by scanning the system and choose "permit" to allow unauthorized access. Even if the system is locked, the popup alert message would still be displayed.
Disable the popup alert message by unchecking the "learning" mode option.
