DHCP server information leaked RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just did a vulnerability assessment.

    one of the issue for my windows 2008 r2, 

    the scan was about to get information from my dhcp server.

    The domain name, the ip address, etc etc. 

    How do i prevent the dhcp server from revealing information?

    It is not necessary to worry about it.

    DHCP was in your internal network, external devices could not access it unless you configured the router and firewall to allow external connection.

    Besides, You could configure the firewall to restrict network traffic to DHCP server.
