Description

One or more Windows event logs have been configured to allow guest access. Windows event logs contain information about application, security, and system events taking place on the local machine. These logs can contain sensitive information, therefore only administrators should be allowed to read them.

Solution(s)

  • windows-eventlog-guest-access

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.
