Open MS-SQL Server Resolution Service Report

This report identifies hosts that have the MS-SQL Server Resolution Service running and accessible on the Internet.

These services have the potential to expose information about a client’s network on which this service is accessible and the service itself can be used in UDP amplification attacks.

For more details behind the scan methodology and a daily update of global MS-SQL Server Resolution Service scan statistics please visit our dedicated MS-SQL Server Resolution Service scan page.
