Re: SMB shares exposed to the internet. Just....... Why?
"Management says give X access or its your ass,"
Have had that, configured X, and then discovered a few weeks later that same manager brought in personal (actually, iirc it was his son's) laptop as the corporate one was too difficult to use, with loads of things that needed him to click (security updates that needed to be accepted before he could access anything). He then plugged it in to the network, which got him nowhere as unused switch ports were disabled, and screamed at his PA to get the "IT guys to fix it or get fired" (words to that effect).
Same guy, few years later ... director at NHS IT.
