How can I disable TCP Timestamps at Windows Server 2008? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using Openvas to scan a Windows Server 2008, found one Vulnerability about TCP Timestamps.

    How can I disable TCP Timestamps on Windows Server 2008?

    Here is the scan result:

    Summary

    The remote host implements TCP timestamps and therefore allows to compute the uptime.

    Vulnerability Detection Result
    It was detected that the host implements RFC1323.
    
    The following timestamps were retrieved with a delay of 1 seconds in-between:
    Packet 1: 251460
    Packet 2: 251567
    
    Impact

    A side effect of this feature is that the uptime of the remote host can sometimes be computed.
