Cutting the cord doesn’t mean giving up live TV. Local channels are completely free and often include content that interests you, including sports. But if you want to make the antenna TV experience a bit more modern, you should add local channels to your Plex server for a killer channel guide, remote streaming, DVR functionality, and more.

How does local TV work with Plex?

As we’ll explain later in this article, adding local TV to your Plex server is an incredibly easy task. Once you have the hardware, the setup takes about ten minutes, if so. But how does local TV work on Plex?

Well, Plex uses a TV antenna and a digital tuner to search for local channels. All locally available content can be found in a Plex Channel Guide, complete with detailed descriptions, closed captions, and a two-week schedule. You can stream these local channels on any device with a Plex app, including your phone, tablet, stream stick, or smart TV.

Any Plex user can add local TV to their server for free. But Plex Pass members get some extremely useful additional features. Not only can Plex Pass members stream video outside of their home, but they can use a DVR feature to record local TV directly to their server storage.

This DVR is extremely versatile. You can set it to automatically record every new episode of your favorite show, for example, and it can even save on older shows if a show is replayed at a higher quality. Plex can also remove (or automatically skip) ads in recorded content, which is pretty nice.

Remember that Plex offers a wide selection of live TV channels for free, although these channels do not include local channels. To add local channels to Plex, you need to follow the steps listed in this article.

Everything you need

You need a few pieces of hardware to get local channels on Plex. And unfortunately, this hardware will set you back just over $100. I think the ability to stream and record local channels is well worth the money, but if you’re on a budget you might want to start off with a digital antenna with just one TV before buying the tuner for Pair it with Plex.

If you want to see what channels are available in your area, try using the FCC reception map or the Channel Master live TV tool. These websites should also give you an overview of signal strength, which is important when choosing an antenna.

  • digital antenna: A TV antenna is required for this project. Any digital antenna will work, whether indoors or outdoors. If you live in a rural area, try using the latter option to improve signal quality and expand your channel selection.
  • Tuner supported: You need a digital TV tuner to process your antenna information. I suggest using SiliconDust HDHomeRun because it works with all Plex servers, regardless of OS or region. That said, Plex offers a full list of compatible tuners on its website. (If you have a digital tuner with an Ethernet port, give it a try, it might work.)
  • Plex pass (optional): Any Plex user can set up OTA TV on their server. But if you want DVR functionality or remote streaming outside your home, you need Plex Pass.

Keep in mind that some services, such as YouTube TV, offer local channels without additional hardware. But OTA TV on Plex is a much cheaper and more customizable option. Plus, setting up with Plex is a snap. If you’ve successfully set up a Plex server, you won’t have any problems with this project.

How to set up digital antenna and tuner

Setting up your digital antenna and tuner is incredibly easy. Basically, we just need to connect this hardware to your home network – it should only take a few minutes, unless you need to install an outdoor antenna, of course.

First, take your digital tuner and connect it to your router (not your Plex server) via an Ethernet cable. If you have a mesh Wi-Fi system with multiple “router nodes”, you should connect your tuner and your Plex server to the same node for maximum reliability.

Now you need to connect your TV antenna to your digital tuner. Most antennas have a coaxial cable built in, and outdoor antennas come with extra long cables, so you don’t need to buy anything extra.

Antenna placement is very important, as it can greatly affect your signal. If you are using an indoor antenna, I suggest sticking it to a window or wall with painter tape instead of the included adhesive – for now, at least. This way you can easily relocate the antenna if you find reception is poor (which we will discuss in the Troubleshooting section).

SiliconDust HDHomeRun

The SiliconDust HDHomeRun digital tuner works with all Plex servers, regardless of operating system or region. Just keep in mind that it can only handle two simultaneous streams at a time.

How to Enable OTA TV on Plex

Complex

Once your antenna and digital tuner are all set up, you can go to the Plex web app and enable OTA TV. Assuming you’ve done everything correctly, it should take five minutes or less, though you might have to wait half an hour for Plex to populate the data in its channel guide.

  1. Open the Plex web app in your browser and sign in.
  2. Go to Settings (the wrench icon in the upper right corner).
  3. Scroll down the left sidebar and click on “Live TV & DVR”.
  4. Click the big “Configure Plex DVR” button (even if you don’t plan to use the DVR).
  5. Plex should automatically discover the digital tuner on your network (if not, see our Troubleshooting section).
  6. Click “Set up device”, enter your country and postal code, then click “Next”.
  7. Plex will automatically scan for channels and ask you if there are any channels you don’t want in your library – make your selection and complete the setup process.

The “Live TV” tab in Plex should start to populate with local channels. It can take Plex about 30 minutes to populate the channel guide because it collects show times two weeks in advance.

Once the Plex channel guide is populated, you can stream OTA TV using the Plex app on any device on your local network. If you are a Plex Pass member, you can also stream this content outside your home or record video using the DVR feature.

Tap the red circle next to a show name in the channel guide to display the DVR settings. From here you can choose where the content will be saved (usually your “TV Channels” category). You can also have Plex automatically record all new episodes (or reruns) of the same show, which is really helpful. And if you go to Plex settings (under “Live TV & DVR”), you can select the DVR content quality and tell Plex to automatically remove ads from recorded video. This feature is about 90% accurate, in my experience.

Troubleshooting and tips

Most people will have no problem setting up OTA TV with Plex. But depending on where you live (and the quality of your antenna), you may find that the channel selection or quality does not meet your expectations. And hey, this is Plex we’re talking about, so you may encounter quirks on the software side.

As I mentioned earlier, you can check which local channels are in your area using the FCC reception map or the Channel Master live TV tool. If Plex is missing channels you’re interested in (or if the channels you’re getting look like crap), you probably need to move your antenna. That’s why I suggested sticking it somewhere before committing to a spot with the included adhesive.

Try moving your antenna to a window or wall elsewhere in your house and scanning for channels in Plex again (go to “Settings”, open “Live TV & DVR”, select your tuner and click “Scan”) . If you don’t want to guess, use the FCC reception map to see which direction (north, south, east, west) your favorite channels are streaming. Pointing your antenna in this direction (or placing it on a wall facing this direction) should improve the signal for these channels.

Now, let’s say Plex doesn’t discover your TV tuner. It’s okay, just restart the Plex web app and try again. If that doesn’t work, you’ll need to manually find your tuner’s IP address and enter it into Plex. You can visit My HDHomeRun to get the IP address of an HDHomeRun box, but you’ll need to consult the instruction manual if you buy another tuner.

I must also reiterate that there is a tonne of settings and options for OTA TV in Plex, especially when it comes to DVR elements. Open Settings and go to “Live TV & DVR” to automatically remove ads from recorded content, adjust transcoder quality, blacklist channels, automatically replace recorded content with higher quality streams, and more.

A month ago, TSplus launched a modernized version of Server Genius, renamed Server Monitoring: a complete monitoring and reporting tool for RDS infrastructures. Since then, customer feedback has already allowed the developer to make a number of new features and improvements for clear and accurate data collection.

IRVINE, Calif. – May 5, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

TSplus Server Monitoring v5 was designed for on-premises and cloud-hosted computing infrastructures. It provides real-time information on the health of remote desktop, web portal, and application servers.

Server Monitoring in its new version met with success from the start, thanks to two advantages:

  • It’s quick and easy to install (see online documentation), with very little configuration and a handy administration tool to centralize all data and settings.
  • It is very powerful as it allows to monitor an entire farm of servers with thousands of users and different websites from one place, collecting useful data and providing out-of-the-box health reports of the network.

With access to vital information, IT and network administrators can also create their own detailed reports. The customization tool offers many options to enable the creation of professional-looking corporate documents with selected data compiled into easy-to-read charts and graphs.

To do this, administrators have access to the following metrics:

  • User load and application usage on remote access application servers.
  • Traffic figures and patterns on websites and web portals.

Server monitoring constantly improved to be more accurate

Based on customer feedback, new settings have been added to make server monitoring and reporting even more accurate and tailored to every need.

Administrators now have the ability to blacklist processes they do not wish to monitor and see the database size as part of the report. There is a new option to add labels on alerts which distinguish website alerts from server alerts.

Overall, TSplus developers are making weekly improvements to keep user satisfaction high with a highly adjustable reporting tool – language updates and localization settings, additional reporting data, new customization options…

The online documentation is also frequently updated to reflect these changes and evolves with each new customer request.

To learn more about customizing reports and learn how to customize logos, colors, chart type of data displayed, see online documentation and “How To” articles: https://docs.terminalserviceplus .com/server-monitoring/report- Customize

Server Monitoring can be downloaded for a 15 day free trial. Recent additions can be checked in the change log.

Need to set up a VPN for your business? Looking for a safer way to connect to the internet? If so, then this guide is for you! We show you how to create your own cloud VPN server using Vultr. We’ll show you how to create a new virtual machine, install and configure OpenVPN, and finally test your setup. Let’s start!

This article was created in partnership with Vultr. Thank you for supporting the partners who make SitePoint possible.

What is Vultr?

Vultr is a popular cloud hosting provider that offers virtual machines in several locations around the world. It offers high-performance virtual machines with multiple locations to choose from.

Vultr is a great choice if you want to build your own VPN server. It offers performance at affordable prices and delivers it reliably. Vultr is also easy to use. It has a user-friendly control panel that provides direct access to excellent VPN configuration tools.

Vultr offers a wide range of virtual machines to choose from, so you can find one that suits your needs. Plans for these start at US$2.50 per month.

Why Run Your Own VPN?

There are many reasons why you might want to set up your own VPN instead of using a commercial VPN provider.

Set up a VPN to replace a paid VPN service

The main reasons are security and privacy. When you use a commercial VPN service, your IP address is hidden from most of the web. However, the VPN provider can still see your traffic as it passes through their servers. This means they can see all the sites you visit and the data you submit.

If they wanted to, they could save this data and sell it to third parties. It’s unclear which services that advertise a no-logs policy follow it.

In our review of the best VPN providers, we found court cases to be a helpful guide: knowing whether services that advertise a no-logs policy have been able to produce logs as evidence is a start. But not all vendors have been tested in this way, and companies that have been may change their internal processes at any time.

You’re forced to trust a third party, and that’s inherently unhealthy when it comes to security and privacy.

Running your own private VPN server means you are in control. You can choose where your VPN servers are located and you can add or remove servers as needed. You are not at the mercy of the whims of a VPN provider.

Why not run a home VPN server?

You might be wondering why you can’t just run a VPN server on your personal computer. After all, it’s probably more convenient than using Vultr.

The answer is that it is not very safe. Your personal IP address is easy to find, and if someone wanted to target you, they could do so quite easily. By using Vultr, you put your VPN server in the cloud, which makes it much harder to target.

So if you’re looking for security and privacy, it’s best to use a cloud hosting provider like Vultr to stay in control. If you’re just looking for convenience, running a VPN server on your personal computer might be fine.

Now that we’ve looked at some reasons why you might want to run your own VPN on a cloud server, let’s see how to set one up on Vultr.

1. Create a Vultr account

The first step is to create a Vultr account. You can do this by going to the Vultr website. Enter your e-mail address and a password of your choice, then click on the “Create an account” button.

Vultr will send you an email to verify your account. You can connect immediately, but you won’t be able to deploy a server until this step is complete.

2. Create a new virtual machine on Vultr

Next, create a new virtual machine on Vultr. To do this, log in to your Vultr account and click on the Deploy the server button. This is where you really start creating your own VPN server.

On this page, you’ll select your virtual machine server type, location, size, and software, and you’ll be able to see the impact on price as you choose between different options.

You will need to make a few selections here:

  • Choose the server: Select Cloud Compute here — these shared vCPU servers fit our needs, and the price is right.
  • Processor and storage technology: We selected regular performance here because we don’t need high-end hardware for production workloads.
  • Server location: Vultr offers sites all over the world. For our purposes, the best choice is the one closest to you.
  • Server image: Switch to the Marketplace Applications tab. There are a few VPN server options here, but for this guide we’ll be selecting OpenVPN Access Server.
  • Server size: Select the $5/month ($0.007/hour) option, unless you know you’ll need a server that can handle more, like an entire team’s traffic. You can always upgrade if that turns out to be insufficient for you.

For the remaining options, such as automated backups, feel free to select based on your preference.

Finally, give your virtual machine a name. It can be anything you want. Click on the Deploy now button.

Your virtual machine will be created and you can see it in the Vultr control panel.

Now that your virtual machine has been created, we can move on to setting up OpenVPN.

3. Create your own VPN server with OpenVPN

Now that we have a working virtual machine, it’s time to set up OpenVPN, a free and open-source VPN implementation.

This process is quite simple.

First, log into your Vultr account and make sure you are on the Bodies tab of the Some products page. Find the virtual machine you just created and click on its name to display its management dashboard.

On this page, scroll down to App Instructions to find a direct link to the OpenVPN admin directory on your server, along with the username and password created during installation.

Check that VPN services are working

Open the admin panel in a new tab. You will see a browser security warning page that looks like this:

This is just the result of our self-signed certificate, so just click Proceed ignore the warning.

You will then be redirected to the OpenVPN access server authentication page. Drop credentials from the server management dashboard and log in.

Here you’ll find options to configure your VPN, upgrade OpenVPN server access if you need to add VPN connection seats, and more.

Head to the Status overview page using the left sidebar to get an overview of relevant details and to activate and deactivate the VPN service.

If all went well, it should be enabled the first time you log in. Otherwise, click “Start VPN Services” while you’re here.

Install the OpenVPN client on your device

The next step is to install and open the OpenVPN client on your computer.

Edit URL bar to remove /admin/ and anything else after and hit enter. Here we just exit out of the admin panel to directly visit the server IP address, where we can easily access client app downloads.

You may need to log in again using the same credentials as the admin panel. You will then see this page:

Click the button for your platform and run the installer on your machine.

Note: If you already use OpenVPN or want to use another client, you can download the connection profile via the same page as the client downloads (under the platform icons).

When you open the app, you should see that this installer has preloaded the correct OpenVPN profile for you.

You should only have to enter a password – it’s the same one we used to access the admin panel earlier.

Then connect to the VPN and make sure everything is working.

Congratulations, you have deployed and connected your own VPN service in just a few minutes.

4. Configure your OpenVPN server

Now that your virtual machine is running, OpenVPN installed, and your first successful connection has been tested, it’s time to configure your VPN according to your needs and preferences.

There are a few settings you might want to adjust right away, like changing the administrative user password, and plenty of advanced options to go further.

Since these changes vary from person to person, we won’t cover them here. Here are some good starting points for further improvements:

OpenVPN alternatives on Vultr

Besides OpenVPN, several other options are available on the Vultr App Marketplace.

  • UTunnel is a VPN server that supports multiple VPN protocols, offers an easy-to-use management console to configure settings and access, and a robust selection of additional features like 2FA and a built-in firewall.
  • WarpSpeed ​​is a web-based VPN server that uses the open source WireGuard protocol.
  • Pritunl is a distributed VPN server that supports OpenVPN, IPsec, and WireGuard protocols. You can connect unlimited devices and unlimited users without license fees.

All of these apps are available for one-click deployment on Vultr.

You know how to create a VPN

If you followed the steps above, you should now have your own VPN up and running. Congratulations on creating your own VPN server!

Now you can use it to connect to the Internet more securely or to access resources on your virtual machine that would otherwise be inaccessible.

We hope you found this guide useful. If you have any questions or comments, do not hesitate to contact us on our support page. Thanks for reading!

This tutorial is about the fix message “The proxy server is refusing connections”. We will do our best for you to understand this guide. I hope you will like this blog Fixed “Proxy server is refusing connections” message. If your answer is yes, please share after reading this.
Contents

Check the message “The proxy server is refusing connections”

Can it be said that you cannot connect to the Internet because you are getting the error message “Intermediate server is refusing connections” in Mozilla Firefox? Assuming this is the case, sit back and relax. There is an exceptionally basic solution to this problem. This is an issue with incorrect proxy server settings in Firefox.

Fix “Proxy server refuses connection error” message

Force Firefox to automatically detect proxy settings

It turns out that this particular issue can also occur due to the way Firefox is configured to deal with proxy servers by default. Unlike many other proxy servers, Firefox will not adopt the system-wide proxy services that are used for the network you are currently connected to. Luckily, you can change the default settings to force the browser to automatically detect proxy settings for this network, which will eventually fix the problem.

Several affected users have confirmed that this operation finally allowed affected users to visit all websites without encountering the “Proxy server is refusing connections” error. Here is a quick guide on how to access Mozilla Firefox’s network settings and change the default connection settings so that the HTTP proxy and network-wide port are adopted.

  • Open your Mozilla Firefox browser and click on the action button at the top right of the screen. In the context menu that has just appeared, click on Options.
  • Once in the Options tab, select the General category from the left vertical menu, then use the right menu to scroll down to Network Settings. When you are there, click on Settings to bring up the advanced menu.
  • Once you’ve successfully brought up the Connection Settings menu, simply toggle the toggle associated with Configure Internet Access to “Use system proxy settings”.
  • As soon as you make this change, click OK to save the changes, then restart your browser and try to access the same webpage that was failing earlier.

If the same “Proxy server is refusing connections” error still occurs, please move on to the next potential solution below.

Add SSL port URL to allowed list (if applicable)

Another scenario that causes this issue is a situation where the end user attempts to access a URL that contains an alternate port for an SSL connection. Some proxy solutions, including EdgeWave iPrism, will treat this as a potential security hole. If this scenario applies, you can fix the problem by going to your proxy server settings and adding the port as an alternate SSL port.

Of course, the steps to do this will be very different depending on the Proxy solution you are using. But to make it easier for you, here is a general guide you can use to add the blocked SSL port to the allowed list.

  • Examine the URL that triggers the “Proxy server is refusing connections” error to see if it contains evidence of an actively used port.
  • Once you’ve successfully identified the problematic port, open your proxy settings and look for a setting that allows you to add the port as an alternate SSL port.
  • Once you’ve done that, save your settings and restart your computer.
  • After the next boot is complete, check if the problem is resolved the next time you start the computer.

If this problem is still not solved after following the instructions below or if this method is not applicable, please proceed to the next potential solution.

Switch to an HTTPS proxy (if applicable)

You may also encounter the error “The proxy server is refusing connections” when trying to access an FTP site through an HTTP proxy. Unlike HTTPS proxy servers, HTTP proxy servers do not allow this. If this scenario applies, you can solve the problem by switching to an HTTPS proxy solution that guarantees end-to-end secure communications. If you don’t want to pay for a premium service, you can use this site to find viable SSL proxy servers you can use. If you cannot find the issue when trying to access a site with FTP functionality, please proceed to the next possible solution below.

Disable the built-in proxy server (if present)

Another scenario that will eventually cause this problem is if a proxy server is enabled in your local area network (LAN) settings without your knowledge. Even if you purposely use a dedicated proxy solution, you should use a trick in the Internet Properties tab and see if you are not actually using two proxies at the same time. This regularly happens after a computer has been attacked by malware or adware. Some viruses will deliberately adjust your proxy settings to redirect you to spammy ads. Many affected users reported that they managed to fix the issue completely after disabling the built-in proxy feature in the Internet Properties tab.

How to Disable Built-in Proxy in Windows 10

  • Open a Run dialog box and press Windows key + R. Next, type “ms-settings:network-proxy” and press Enter to open the Proxy tab of the Settings menu.
  • Once you’re in the Proxy tab, use the menu on the right side to scroll down to the Manual proxy settings section and turn off the toggle associated with Use a proxy server.
  • Once this tweak is applied, restart your computer and see if the issue is resolved the next time you start the computer.

How to Disable Built-in Proxy in Windows 7, Windows 8.1

  • Press Windows key + R to open a Run dialog box. In the text box, type “inetcpl.cpl” in the text box and press Enter to open the Internet Properties tab.
  • After opening the Internet Properties tab, select the Connections tab from the horizontal menu at the top, then click LAN Settings (under Local Area Network LAN Settings).
  • Once you manage to enter the local area network (LAN) settings menu, navigate to the proxy server settings and uncheck the box associated with “Use a proxy server for your LAN”
  • Once the proxy server is disabled, restart your computer and see if the problem is resolved the next time you start the computer.

If the “Proxy server is refusing connections” error persists, proceed to the next potential fix below.

Uninstall the VPN client (if applicable)

It turns out that Firefox doesn’t have a specific error message indicating a problem caused by a VPN network. So, if you’re using a VPN client that really makes it easier for this problem to occur, you can expect to get the same error message (proxy server is refusing connections).

If this scenario applies, you can fix the problem simply by disabling the VPN client causing the problem. If that’s not an option, the only option left is to uninstall the VPN solution entirely. If you’re out of options, here’s a quick guide on how to uninstall the VPN client from your computer.

  • Press Windows key + R to open a Run dialog box. In the text box, type “appwiz.cpl” and press Enter to open the Programs and Features screen. When prompted by UAC (User Account Control), click Yes to grant administrative privileges.
  • On the Programs and Features screen, scroll down the list of installed apps and locate the VPN client you are actively using. Once you manage to find the VPN solution, right-click on it and choose Uninstall from the pop-up menu that just appeared.
  • Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the uninstallation, then restart your computer and see if the problem is resolved the next time the system boots.

Final Words: Fixed “Proxy server is refusing connections” error message

Hope you understand this article Fixed “Proxy server is refusing connections” message, if your answer is no, you can ask anything via the contact forum section linked to this article. And if your answer is yes, share this article with your family and friends.

Renting cloud servers can leave sensitive data to be entered https://thedirectories.org/renting-cloud-servers-can-leave-sensitive-data-to-be-entered/ Mon, 11 Apr 2022 12:39:43 +0000 https://thedirectories.org/renting-cloud-servers-can-leave-sensitive-data-to-be-entered/ UNIVERSITY PARK, Pennsylvania — Renting space and IP addresses on a public server has become common business practice, but according to a team of Pennsylvania state IT experts, current industry practices can lead to the “cloud squatting”, which can create a security risk, endangering sensitive customer and organizational data intended to remain private.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pennsylvania — Renting space and IP addresses on a public server has become common business practice, but according to a team of Pennsylvania state IT experts, current industry practices can lead to the “cloud squatting”, which can create a security risk, endangering sensitive customer and organizational data intended to remain private.

Cloud squatting occurs when a company, such as a bank, rents space and IP addresses – unique addresses that identify individual computers or computer networks – on a public server, uses them, and then returns the ‘space and addresses to public server company, a standard pattern seen every day. The public server company, such as Amazon, Google, or Microsoft, then assigns the same addresses to a second company. If that second business is a bad actor, it may receive incoming information at the address intended for the original business – for example, when you, as a customer, unknowingly use an outdated link when interaction with your bank – and use it to your advantage – cloud squat.

“There are two benefits to renting server space,” said Eric Pauley, a computer science and engineering PhD student. “One is cost advantage, savings on equipment and management. The other is scalability. Renting server space provides an unlimited pool of computing resources so that as the workload changes, companies can adapt quickly.” As a result, cloud usage has grown exponentially, which means almost every website a user visits takes advantage of cloud computing.

While Penn State researchers suspected that cloud squatting was possible, they designed an experiment to determine if cloud tenants were vulnerable and to quantify the extent of the problem. The researchers set up a series of cloud server rentals from Amazon Web Services in its us east 1 region, the region that serves the east coast of the United States. They rented server space for 10-minute intervals, received information sent to the address intended for previous tenants, then moved to another server location, repeating the process. They did not request any data and did not send any data. Whatever unsolicited data they received was potentially intended for former tenants.

For example, if a mobile banking company rented server space, it would receive an IP address from the public cloud services company. After relinquishing that server space and IP address, the next tenant of that space could receive all personal financial data sent by the bank customer to the IP address.

The researchers note in the Proceedings of the 43rd IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy that they “deployed over 3 million servers receiving 1.5 million unique IP addresses over 101 days.” They identified cloud servers, third-party services, and domain name servers (DNS) as sources of potentially serious security vulnerabilities.

“The previous perception was that the DNS was the only risk,” Pauley said. “So if the DNS was secure, it was fine. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a panacea.”

Of the 5 million pieces of data they received, many contained sensitive information, including financial transactions, GPS locations and personally identifiable information.

“We did not knowingly receive health data, but we have confirmed that an adversary could receive this data,” said Patrick McDaniel, William L. Weiss Professor of Information and Communications Technology. at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Penn State. “For example, requests received by one of our IP addresses were directed to the health and human services website, HHS.gov. We did not interact further, but others may claim to be an HHS service and get people to interact.” In this case, from the user’s perspective, they would believe they are talking to a legitimate government agency, exposing sensitive personal and health data.

If companies use in-house cloud mail or cloud print services, when these IP addresses are dropped, requests for information sent to these services by company personnel who mistakenly attempt to use the old addresses or who are unaware that addresses have changed may get into the wrong hands.

“Our experiment collected, encrypted and sent everything we obtained to a secure location for analysis,” McDaniel said. “We also took additional steps to ensure that all detected user data was protected.”

McDaniel notes that the research was conducted pursuant to Amazon’s Vulnerability Reporting Program, which allows security researchers acting in good faith to conduct their research.

The researchers immediately contacted the three major cloud server companies, AWS, Microsoft and Google, as well as vulnerable US government agencies, to inform them of the vulnerabilities in their server practices. Amazon, after reviewing the information and an internal audit, is implementing a series of practices to try to contain cloud squatting on its servers.

To address cloud squatting issues, the researchers believe that mitigation efforts should be made by both cloud server companies and customers who rent server space. On the cloud server side, one of the ways to thwart cloud squatting is to prevent the reuse of IP addresses. However, this is limited by the number of available IP addresses.

Second, “server companies can create blocks of reserved IP addresses,” McDaniel said. “A large customer organization might be assigned a fixed range of recyclable addresses within the company.”

Third, server companies can delay the recycling of IP addresses, but the longer the IP addresses are inactive, the more expensive it will be for the server company.

On the client side, users can avoid producing IP address configurations that persist after cloud server IP addresses are dropped. However, the researchers found that this rarely happened because central control and oversight of IP address configurations within an organization was often limited. In interviews with affected cloud server users, researchers found that many organizations had little visibility into how the dozens or hundreds of different accounts using cloud computing capabilities were being used and, more importantly, downgraded, by departments and employees.

“Users typically fail to delete configurations that point to IP addresses on cloud servers,” McDaniel said. “It could be a downgraded printer that’s still on the menu or a domain name or a post-it saying connect to a specific address. Because the issues are very broad and spread over many very many users, it can be very difficult to have a methods to fix them, however, common threads are a failure to monitor and decommission obsolete configurations.

IP addresses used to be long-lived or static, but now they are dynamic and change in hours or minutes. This introduces a large class of vulnerability, according to the researchers.

“I would heed the conclusion that despite the overwhelming appeal of cloud servers, cloud computing is not without risk,” Pauley said. “However, by managing and monitoring their use, we can mitigate much of this danger. The free lunch that people thought clouds were is not free. Companies must weigh the risk to benefit. ”
