Indeed! But it is should be logical, as IPMI is supposed to be for OOB
access right? :)

Anybody not putting them behind a properly restricted firewall and/or
VLAN is asking for issues... typical IPMI boxes run outdated linux
kernels, with nice olddated userspace and a whole lot of tools that one
can not really restrict access to, thus it is quite silly to have that
access open to the public.
