At the company I work for we recently purchased a network scanning tool to help with asset inventory and overall PC network management. My supervisor, while looking at the different IP address ranges for the various offices, noticed the range 222.222.222.x on about 30 machine's. We called the IT supervisor at the site and was told that the address range is set up as the DCHP range for VPN users. This seems like a huge security risk to me.
What are the risks involved with using this range of addresses?
The address's are used publicly in China, what are the risks associated with this?
Does this open us up as an easier target for attack?
