    For what reference have you asked for? What is the environment there? Is this a testing lab/your office? Is this hardware/ software related?

    More specific information as to the current system set up and configuration is needed to provide a answer. There are too many unknown variables with the current question.

    Tough to say with the limited details. Were you able to exploit it? There are probably tens of thousands of of potential vulnerabilities that an IDS (or IPS) may or may not detect.

    Sounds like a course homework question.

    Why are you asking that?

    Provide more details about the scenario, if it's a real one, and we will be able to provide more accurate help.

    One more thing, while you motioned, "vulnerability was found", and IF, have you already tested that, Or going to be test? If It is already done, then now, are you searching for remedy? This is quiet confusing.
