Norton Core allows remote access without challenge
I have some serious issues with Norton Core allowing remote access to its Admin functions and allowing remote connections to devices on my private network below are my concerns.
1. From my cell phone I could connect to my Western Digital NAS from external location. The Core device allowed a connection with out any setup or challenge. For 25 years I worked in Network Security and this counter to any rational reason to allow admin access to a private network without a proper challenge. I was able to prohibit the access on the NAS device.
2. I discovered I could access my Norton Core router device with no challenge. This is not acceptable please review. I would ask you as a InfoSec provider, do you allow you staff access to your central firewall and routers from their cell phones without a password challenge?
3. In my opinion a cell phone, I-pad, or tablet are the least secure devices in the todays world.
For the most part I like the Norton Core device, but beef up the security. I am seriously thinking of putting a firewall between the Core device and Internet. Also you need to provide a syslog function.
