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

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

the Domain System (DNS) is a group servers on the Internet. enable the translation humanly readable . Such an into we call an Internet Protocol addresses.

Tunneling hacking skills refer to an intelligent practice for a hacker routing network traffic. a port a  protocol, does not usually travel .

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

How does the DNS tunneling work?

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

According to some specialist. is technically to data using DNS tunneling on the MTN network. The specialist continues and 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 move without any doubt”, put a countermeasure to interrupting persistent connections, on the network.

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

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

This bridge in the network could exploited by phishing with Hacking skill .

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

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

O’Sullivan MTN aware of the exploit identified by the researcher, as the older they provided in their the vulnerabilities they discovered. “In both instances measures we’re putting in 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.”
