    A United States-based network security watchdog has warned of a security hole in firewall software that will give an attacker access to the system and could lead to a denial of service attack. An advisory from CERT overnight said Check Point VPN1 and FireWall1 Version 4.1 software contained a vulnerability that may allow an intruder to pass traffic through the firewall on port 259/UDP.

    The advisory said FireWall1 and VPN1 do not provide adequate security controls for RDP (reliable data protocol), a protocol designed to provide a reliable data transport service for packetbased applications such as remote loading and debugging, and supported by the firewall software.
