Description

An NFS volume is mountable by everyone. Although this is not necessarily a vulnerability itself, this does not exhibit "best practice" from a security standpoint; mounting privileges should be restricted only to hosts that require them.

Solution(s)

  • nfs-mountd-0002

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.
