myQNAPcloud and security

Post by spile » Mon Jun 29, 2020 12:08 am

I am confused.
MyQNAPcloud is a current product, promoted by QNAP as "a cloud service provided by QNAP for you to remotely connect to your QNAP devices and to share your files securely."
Source: https://support.myqnapcloud.com/faq/wha ... ud?lang=en and https://www.qnap.com/en/how-to/tutorial ... ud-service

It is interesting that the questions posed in this thread viewtopic.php?t=134974 opened in 2017 have still not been answered.

1) Is the current version of myQnapcloud and QTS inherently insecure as a service and therefore unsafe to use?
2) If 1 and 2 are true why have QNAP issued this: https://www.qnap.com/en-uk/security-advisory/qsa-20-02?

Unfortunately, QNAP's marketing dept are detached from reality. Their hope is that the quoted statement will eventually be true. :S

The answers provided by @dm in that topic are still correct. There's nothing more to add. (I'll also need to lock it now to prevent anyone reviving it. ;) )

1) myqnapcloud is a DDNS service (mainly) nothing secure or insecure about it, QTS system is not hardened enough to be exposed to the net
2) unclear what a security advisory is supposed to (dis)prove , please elaborate
