I have a question I was wondering if someone could help me out. I have been reading around for few days now and cannot seem to find an answer. I thought of a scenario last week and can't figure out what the outcome would be.
Example: A system has multiple servers and they are behind a firewall. One server has an open port and is running a vulnerable version of a service. If an attacker was to connect to the open port on the server (through the firewall) and launch exploit code...would the firewall pick it up? Or, would the firewall not be reviewing it as the port is open for the application?
Disclaimer: this is not real world, it is a hypothetical question
Thanks for any advice
