MTN Network Security Challenge. Why this company deal with notorious hackers trying steal free data ? The reason is there for free traffic tools.

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

Notice that the Domain Name (DNS) is a group servers on the Internet. Which enable the humanly readable domains. as as an example into we call an Internet Protocol addresses.

Tunneling hacking skills refer to an intelligent practice for a hacker routing network traffic. a port or a  protocol, does .

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

How does the DNS tunneling work?

The DNS tunneling is like when someone a network traffic in the protocol used for DNS. However, this is an everyday . This of operation orchestrated hackers. who want to bypass controls put in to safeguard a network.

According to some specialist. is technically possible to get free data using DNS tunneling on the MTN network. The specialist continues said eventually be a remarkably fast connection because of the limitation of the DNS protocol.

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

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

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

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

Why MTN is resisting under attack ?
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 at MTN Jacqui O’Sullivan said in an interview

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

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

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