MTN Network Security Challenge. Why this company constantly to deal with notorious hackers trying to steal free data from ? The reason are looking free tools.

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

the System (DNS) a group of servers on the Internet. Which enable the of humanly readable domains. www.ernstgeorges. into what we Internet Protocol addresses.

Tunneling hacking skills refer to intelligent practice a hacker of routing network traffic. Over a port a  protocol, does usually travel over.

This practice of tunneling hacking is somehow legal a certain . Because this the exact process your Virtual Private Networking, VPN services do to secure your data limited .

does the DNS tunneling ?

The DNS tunneling is when encrypted a network in the protocol used DNS. However, this is an everyday . This type of operation usually orchestrated hackers. Individuals want to bypass controls put in place to safeguard a network.

to specialist. is technically possible to free data using DNS tunneling on the MTN network. The specialist continues said eventually will 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 without any doubt”, put a countermeasure to interrupting persistent connections, on the network.

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

Besides the existant vulnerability presented DNS tunneling, the cybersecurity specialist does other issues with the captive portal is displayed when run out of data airtime.
Crucially, the page does not have a security certificate all. The reason for is the IP address of the MTN No Funds (196.11.240.215) is equally associating with several other MTN domains.

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

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

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

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

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