Additional DNS Hostnames

This entry from Security Metrics demonstrates that there are multiple DNS entries on record for the IP address of your server.

ClearCenter response

Short response

Multiple DNS entries for one IP is not indicative of a vulnerability nor does it give special insight to an attacker.

Long response

That multiple DNS names are assigned to this host does not indicate a security risk. In many cases this is merely indicative of virtual hosts, dynamic DNS, or other such multipurpose use of an IP.

Resolution

No action required.
