Description

The Domino server has been configured to allow anonymous access to the NNTP Cross-Posting database (/nntppost.nsf). This database serves as a temporary holding area for cross-posted articles. The NNTP task will cross post the articles contained in this database at scheduled intervals. There is no reason for anonymous users to have access to this database.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
