Network and Storage Protocols

NetBIOS Brute Force of Accounts

ROGERIO24

Hi

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

THREAT:

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

IMPACT:

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

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

method.

SOLUTION:

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

your password policy and eliminate guessable passwords.

Hi,

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 ...

Best regards
