Hello James,

Today is the first time I heard of such a thing as a "TCP timestamp vulnerability." It seems a bit overblown to me, especially for a Tomcat server running on an AS/400.

It is. To me, the "risk" is exaggerated by those tin foil hats also blocking ICMP echo requests (ping) "because of security" — and making my life as a network admin a misery, because I can't easily diagnose if a host is basically up.

And, both is easy food to pentesters, so they can find at least something they can complain about: "What? You pentested us, charge *that* much money and you got *nothing*?"

I say: Ignore.

Can anybody share any insights about how this vulnerability relates to Midrange boxes?

In exactly the same way it relates to any other platform. You might have done some Googling yourself. ;-)

:wq! PoC
