An unused AWS Security Group allows public access to TCP port 8080. This port may not be secure and traffic transmitted may be unencrypted. Port 8080 has historically been used as an alternate web server port (HTTP alt) for development environments and for HTTP proxies. Unused Security Groups should be removed, or if re-assigned, remove or restrict the inbound rule allowing TCP port 8080 in this Security Group.
