What do you see as the most serious threat to storage network security
today or in the next year?
First, it is hard to predict what the hackers have in mind. However,
it is generally believed that the access to management ports is one of the
very high vulnerabilities for storage networks. Through such ports, if not
properly protected, there can be denial-of-service attacks -- these are low
level attacks that can cripple the targeted part of the storage network.
