Shows all insecure system services and protocols to verify that their usage is justified per configuration standards |
This query lists all potentially insecure services enabled on the managed endpoints and its output can be used to demonstrate your compliance with this section of PCI. Examples of services include remote Remote Access, remote execution (psexec or PowerShell), unnecessary IIS web servers and more. They might be needed for business purposes, but they are also commonly used by attackers to compromise endpoints and gain control over them.
