Data at risk

RDS database instance is publicly accessible

Description

RDS database instance {AwsRdsDbInstance} is publicly accessible. When the RDS instance allows unrestricted access, everyone and everything on the Internet can establish a connection to your database and this can increase the opportunity for malicious activities such as brute force attacks, PostgreSQL injections, or DoS/DDoS attacks.
  • Recommended Mitigation

    We recommend to disable the database Publicly Accessible flag and to update the VPC security group associated with the instance to restrict public access.
