A manufacturing company's 10 Mbit line began to feel as slow as syrup, so they decided to upgrade it to 100 Mbits; but it was still too slow. Given that the company has about 200 employees, a 100 Mbit line should easily be able to meet their needs. They contacted Secode to request an investigation into the cause of the disturbing connection. A security consultant from Secode was immediately dispatched to the customer and it didn't take long to identify the problem.
It turned out that the company had an FTP server that they were unaware of installed on their DMZ. A media company in the area had caught wind of this, and had been using it for about nine months as a distribution server for films of a questionable nature. It figures that the culprits were happy about the customer's upgrade from 10 to 100 Mbits!
After this incident the customer decided to subscribe to managed security services including monitored port exposure, environmental analysis, and incident monitoring, all of which would have helped to expose this unfortunate incident when the film was sent out for the first time, rather than for the 100th time.
