Vulnerability with Chargen Service

Hi, one of our security scans is showing that the chargen service is running on our clustered PRTG Core Servers as described here http://www.tenable.com/plugins/index.php?view=single&id=10043. Our recommended course of action is to disable this service. Does PRTG rely on this service for operation?

Thanks, Anthony

Hi there,

No, PRTG does not rely on this service. You can safely disable it.
