mDNS Detection (Remote Network)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

It is possible to obtain information about the remote host.

Description :

The remote service understands the Bonjour (also known as ZeroConf or
mDNS) protocol, which allows anyone to uncover information from the
remote host such as its operating system type and exact version, its
hostname, and the list of services it is running.

This plugin attempts to discover mDNS used by hosts that are not on the
network segment on which Nessus resides.

Solution :

Filter incoming traffic to UDP port 5353, if desired.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0

Family: Service detection
