Once I connect to Pulse Secure 9 VPN on macOS, my host name on Terminal changes. Checking on
System Preferences >
NetBIOS Name this is where it's being set. Why does and how does that happen? Is this a security concern?
Their KB19294 article says
Hosts file is modified/accessed when a VPN Tunneling client is launched [...] to ensure that the PCS hostname resolves to the same IP which it resolved to before the tunnel was launched
And it seems like my /etc/hosts gets over written and a
/etc/pulse-hosts.bak gets created, but the host name is not set there.
- Maybe my question already contains the partial answer, but it still doesn't make sense to me.
