It always comes back to encryption, doesn't it? If the data stored in the NAS were locked down with encryption, it would be worthless to the data thief. But unfortunately, encryption just isn't standard procedure today in many cases.

Re: sigh ..aka researchers are creating more harm than good
I partially agree but if there is vulnerability it would be exploited at one point, it would always be better knowing about it and taking preventive actions.

Re: NAS vulns
I would agree at the sane time if storage and router is vulnerable that simply means whole network is vulnerable. We may need to check and consider in a wider perspective.

If they found vulnerability in NAS one should assume the sabe security flows in SAN and DAS. No system is security-proof. Unless data is encrypted at rest I would consider the storage unsecure and start from them.

NAS vulns
Holcomb has found that NAS devices are more vulnerable than Soho routers--that should be a wakeup call since he found some 56 vulns in routers and expects to find even more in NASes. Not to mention they hold potentially valuable info.

sigh ..aka researchers are creating more harm than good
like to know who is funding these research to create viruses to attack NAS ..i am wore out as geek and tech after 15 years of cleannig machines , fake AV's and all kinds of malware peoople choose to click or install without realizing it is virus ..i almost became researcher aka virus creator and progammer i had training when i was 16-18 but i said No to recuiter and start my 2 companies didnt come back to progamming until recently ..and been dealing with anonymous members nearly taking everything i had and fighting back to regain my footing now the member was harrarssing me is scared of me ..yet Bloomberg TV/West refused my offers to expose this anon i had deal with too much losses and too many close calls with dealth at hospitals ..i am stil trying to get my story out int the public but someone keeps trying to shut me up and make my ass poor again lucky i am in politics now i got plenty of lawyer friends that will want to hear my story help me put the group into default and crying hackers because they turned on the wrong geek was prepared for war ..AIM high like Air Force ..!

The 10 Most Impactful Types of Vulnerabilities for Enterprises Today
Managing system vulnerabilities is one of the old est - and most frustrating - security challenges that enterprise defenders face. Every software application and hardware device ships with intrinsic flaws - flaws that, if critical enough, attackers can exploit from anywhere in the world. It's crucial that defenders take stock of what areas of the tech stack have the most emerging, and critical, vulnerabilities they must manage. It's not just zero day vulnerabilities. Consider that CISA's Known Exploited Vulnerabilities (KEV) catalog lists vulnerabilitlies in widely used applications that are "actively exploited," and most of them are flaws that were discovered several years ago and have been fixed. There are also emerging vulnerabilities in 5G networks, cloud infrastructure, Edge applications, and firmwares to consider.
