Control: 6.2.5 Ensure no VPC access control lists allow ingress from to port 3389


VPC access control lists filter all incoming and outgoing traffic in IBM Cloud VPC. An ACL is a built-in, virtual firewall where ACL rules control traffic to and from the subnets, rather than to and from the virtual servers. It is recommended that no ACL allows unrestricted ingress access to port 3389.
