NAT-PMP Detection (remote network)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

Nessus was able to obtain information about the remote network.

Description :

The remote device has the NAT-PMP protocol enabled. This protocol
may allow any application on an internal subnet to request port
mappings from the outside to the inside.

If this service is reachable from the outside your network, it may
allow a remote attacker to gain more information about your network
and possibly to break into it by creating dynamic port mappings.

Solution :

Filter incoming traffic to UDP port 5351.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5

Family: Service detection
