Better think things through when giving up the reigns and letting a third-party Web hosting or colo provider run the show:
You’d think Network Solutions would have better security controls in place.
When will people pull their heads out of the sand? Maybe never??
Speaking of this specific vulnerability, here’s a recent bit I wrote on Acunetix’s blog about on looking past layer 7 and fixing all Web-related issues.
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
