BGP Open Ports
Qrator Radar team is pleased to announce a new feature of our network scanner: we begin to detect hosts with vulnerable ports in your network. At this moment we are detecting open TCP ports of BGP network protocol. This protocol is often used by network devices (especially border routers), and generally access to these devices should be restricted using ACL. If such port is open for everyone, it is a serious vulnerability which can be used by attacker to cause denial of service of the network device, which can in turn cause outage of whole networks.
New Client Portal and Qrator Initiatives
For a long time, we have been working on the improvement of the UI. Today, we are pleased to announce our first step – the client portal has been totally redone. We hope you will notice that the reports are much more useful and the configuration process is easier now.
We are also launching Initiatives website where we are going to share our ideas on changing the Internet to the better. As for now two initiatives are described – route leak mitigation and ASN union. You are welcome to subscribe, comment and share your ideas!
