What's IT to Be ... Incoming Hostilities or Outrageous Hospitality ‽

a "malicious actor with network access to port 389 on an affected vmdir deployment may be able to extract highly sensitive information such as administrative account credentials".

Which further translates in vulnerable circles, are extracting highly sensitive information such as administrative account credentials in the here and now for future vmdir deployments. Past and present instances are of no effective consequence whenever there are proactive malicious actors with special stealthy access to networks.

Deny it if you don't believe it, however, simply watch, listen and learn how AI and IT easily proves and shows such things to be perfectly true.

Some think Catastrophic Exploitable Vulnerability, A.N.Others Almighty Useful Facility.
