NetBIOS Brute Force of Accounts


IT security area have sent us this alarm related to a NAS.

Does Someone know about IT? How must we fix it?

Below I have attached further details about it


User access (login and password) was obtained during a brute force attack session.


Unauthorized users can penetrate your shared files, steal data, and rapidly

compromise this host. The account shown below was obtained using a brute force



Please change the user password or disable it completely. You should also review

your password policy and eliminate guessable passwords.

Re: NetBIOS Brute Force of Accounts


I guess this simply means someone, presumably someone performing a security audit on your network, was able to get access to your NAS storage system because at least one account on it had a weak password.

You basically need to set up your systems with strong passwords ...
