d0f0e951-4cca-4ca9-9b9e-e9e13e39ca99

Unnecessary services increase the attack surface of a system. Some of these services may not support the required levels of authentication or encryption or may provide unauthorized access to the system. Some protocols and services do not support required security features, such as encrypting passwords or traffic.

Remediation

Uninstall "Simple TCPIP Services (i.e. echo, daytime etc)" from the system.
