Description

The Domino server has been configured to allow anonymous access to the NNTP Discussion database #2 (/nntp/nd000002.nsf). This newsgroup database is installed by default as part of the NNTP services. It is typically not used. However, anonymous users may post articles and even file attachments to this database without your knowledge.

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.
