Description

One or more Elastic Block Store (EBS) instances are no encrypted, allowing an attacker to read potentially sensitive information regarding the launch configuration of EC2 Instances

Impact

Recommendation

Enable the encryption of all the EBS instances by setting the property Encrypted to true

Threat

Anonymous attacker with local access to a EBS instance

Expected Remediation Time

⌚ 20 minutes.
