MTN Network Security Challenge. Why company constantly to deal notorious hackers trying to steal data from ? The reason there for traffic .

Because to various cybersecurity researcher group report. There a vulnerability backdoor in the MTN network. Allows experienced hackers to get data using DNS tunneling hacking techniques.

Notice the Domain Name (DNS) a group of servers the Internet. enable the of humanly readable . Such as www. as example we Internet Protocol addresses.

Tunneling hacking skills refer to intelligent practice for a hacker of routing network traffic. Over a port or a  protocol, does not travel over.

practice of tunneling hacking is somehow legal a level. Because the exact process your Virtual Private Networking, VPN services do to secure your data and limited Internet traffic.

does the DNS tunneling ?

The DNS tunneling is like when someone encrypted a network traffic in the protocol used for DNS. , this is not an everyday . This type of operation orchestrated hackers. want to bypass controls put in to safeguard a network.

to some specialist. is technically possible to get free data using DNS tunneling the MTN network. The specialist continues and said eventually will not be a remarkably fast connection because of the limitation of the DNS protocol.

Nevertheless, Internet security analyst noticed connections to MTN’s DNS servers reset often. It’s a safety move any doubt”, put as a countermeasure to interrupting persistent connections, the network.

Nonetheless, there is possibility to MTN’s root DNS servers even if you no airtime or data, the researcher added.

Besides the existant vulnerability presented DNS tunneling, the cybersecurity specialist does notice other issues the captive is displayed when you run out of data and airtime.
Crucially, the page does not a security certificate all. The reason for is the IP address of the MTN No domain ( is equally associating several other MTN .

This bridge in the network could exploited phishing scams with low Hacking skill easy.

Why MTN is constantly resisting attack constantly?
It’s is to know that “DNS tunneling is just one of types of cyber attacks that operators on a constant basis,” executive for affairs MTN Jacqui O’Sullivan said in an interview

“MTN is constantly monitoring any potential security attacks or bypass mechanisms, and built-in protocols to such attacks.”

O’Sullivan said MTN aware of the exploit identified by the researcher, as well as the older example they provided in report the vulnerabilities they discovered. “In both instances measures we’re putting in to limit MTN’s ,” O’Sullivan said.

“MTN proactively manages this environment and because the attempted attacks constantly changing, we focus on identifying the abuse and implementing the necessary controls.”
