Description

An AWS Security Group acts as a virtual firewall for your instances to control inbound and outbound traffic. It was detected that the security group {AwsEc2SecurityGroup} is configured to allow inbound access from any IP address (0.0.0.0/0 or ::/0) through common high risk ports. Accepting unrestricted inbound access to these ports may increase the opportunity of malicious activity such as hacking and loss of data.
