Network Management Systems hit by hackers

 
 

New research which has been done by Rapid7, suggests that Network Management Systems are hit a lot more by hackers than they were.

Vulnerabilities that are in systems that are used to manage networks with devices like servers, routers and printers offer attackers lots of valuable information. Printers for example are responsible for printing all sorts of sensitive information like payroll and company documentation. Servers hold valuable information like a HR server will hold personal and private information on the employees. All this information in the wrong hands could be devastating.

Hackers will use the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), this protocol is used by many Network Management Systems to monitor and manage a wide variety of network devices.
