An unused AWS Security Group allows public access to the Kibana port (5601). Kibana is used to visualize and run queries against Elasticsearch data. Public access to this port could expose data to unauthorized or unintended applications, users, or malicious actors. Unused Security Groups should be removed, or if re-assigned, remove or restrict the inbound rule allowing Kibana (port 5601) in this Security Group.
