A default VPC is automatically created when you first provision related resources and is suitable for a quick start. The default VPC is used when an instance is launched without a particular subnet. It was found that the default VPC is being used for launching your EKS cluster {AwsEksCluster}. The default VPC comes with a default configuration that lacks the proper security controls.
