This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

It was possible to add port redirections to the remote router.

Description :

According to UPnP data, the remote device is a NAT router which supports
the Internet Gateway Device (IGD) Standardized Device Control Protocol.

Nessus was able to add 'port mappings' that redirect ports from the
device external interface to the scanner address.

A malicious Flash animation could do the same.
