Principal results and interesting observations are presented from a cybersecurity evaluation in an unnamed Chilean Government Ministry. The OSSTM methodology was utilized and considers the following steps: Footprinting, Scanning, Enumeration and Denial of Service. The evaluation included a Penetration Test and also a proposal for risk mitigation activities. Our evaluation has found that both the security level of the ministerial network and its technology infrastructure require improvements and system upgrades (some of them were suggested as urgent) to protect the ministerial network from current vulnerabilities that could present problems for state security.
