    Smile Unanswered: How To Disable Software Type and Version

    Hi all.
    May i know is it possible to disable the software type and version of MS SQL ?
    The purpose of doing this, because don't want the server leaks the software type and version. This information would be useful to an attacker attempting specific exploits against the server.

    So that, the recommended for this a disable this feature on server, since this has no adverse effect on the database.

    If possible to disable or hide. can someone help/teach/explain the way to disable or hide the software type and version of MS SQL.

    Really help and appreciate your help.

    Thank you .

    I don't understand your question.

    Are you trying to prevent the server from being discovered? If so, an external firewall is your best choice since it protects the server from most kinds of attack. A software firewall would be my next choice.

    If you can help us understand what you want, we can probably help you. Another reader might understand your question better, and may be able to give you a better answer. If not, please try to explain what you desire in a different way and I'm sure that one of us will try to help you!

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.
