Windows Authentication Method QID

Windows Authentication Method QID (70028) provides important information about whether the service was able to authenticate to the host. This QID is detected on many hosts since the service attempts NULL session authentication if the service did not perform successful authentication using user-provided credentials (as defined in an authentication record).

It's recommended that you review the information in the Results section to confirm that authentication to the host was performed successfully. Important! The presence of this QID in your scan results does not mean that authentication was successful using user-provided credentials (as defined in an authentication record). Please review the detailed scan results for QID 70028 carefully.
