Description

LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is a software protocol for enabling anyone to locate data about organizations, individuals and other resources such as files and devices in a network. The LDAP port (389) is open on your virtual machine and allows all incoming traffic from the Internet. In order to keep security best practices, you should restrict access to be only from allowed IP addresses.
  • Recommended Mitigation

    Configure networking rule to allow incoming LDAP traffic from allowed IP addresses only.
