I was reviewing a scan result where I could see Qualys Guard reporting the below:

d:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.SQLEXPRESS\MSSQL\Binn\sqlservr.exe Version is 2009.100.1617.0

/usr/bin/java -version 2>&1 java version "1.6.0_26"

Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_26-b03)

Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 20.1-b02, mixed mode)


The former is where QG checked a file - Do we require authentication? Result says Windows authentication failed

The latter is probably the output of a Unix command - Do we require authentication? Result says Unix Authentication Timeout Occurred
