Risk Level: Medium
Cloud Entity: Amazon EC2 Instance
CloudGuard Rule ID: D9.AWS.NET.AG2.7.Instance.25.TCP
Covered by Spectral: No
Instance where isPublic=true and inboundRules contain [port <= 25 and portTo >= 25 and protocol in ('TCP','ALL')] should not have inboundRules contain [port <= 25 and portTo >= 25 and protocol in ('TCP','ALL') and scope isPublic() and scope numberOfHosts() > 32 and scope numberOfHosts() <= 256]
Limit the access scope for Instance with service 'SMTP to only allow access in internal networks and limited scope.
If public interface exists, remove it and limit the access scope within the VPC only to applications or instances that requires access.
As a further protection step, Use CloudGuard 'Tamper Protection' (Full Protection mode) and region lock to prevent unauthorized changes to network access settings, refer to https://sc1.checkpoint.com/documents/CloudGuard_Dome9/Documentation/Network-Security/FullProtectionMode.html?Highlight=full%20protection for more details.
