What this scan detects
  • Security groups with open ports

    Security groups (AWS' virtual firewalls) with open ports, like SSH, FTP, and MySQL, or port ranges, could be problematic as unintentionally exposed ports give bad actors a potential attack vector into your account.
  • Creation and deletion of SSH key pairs

    Detecting the creation and deletion of EC2 SSH key pairs can be problematic as it is a potential warning sign of unauthorized activity in your AWS account, often with elevated permissions. Use Monitoring to receive this finding.
  • Deletion of EC2 instances

    Deletion of EC2 instances could be problematic as it is a potential warning sign of unauthorized access and activity in your AWS account. Use Monitoring to receive this finding.
  • Unencrypted EBS volumes

    Unencrypted EBS volumes could be problematic as they not only present the risk of compliance violations, but also leaves data stored on the EBS volume at greater risk of leakage in the case of a security incident, like a data breach.
