UPnP Internet Gateway Device (IGD) Protocol Detection

medium Nessus Plugin ID 35709
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote device supports the IGD protocol.

Description

According to its UPnP data, the remote device is a NAT router which supports the Internet Gateway Device (IGD) Standardized Device Control Protocol. Therefore, the device is potentially vulnerable as the protocol can allow an adjacent attacker to punch holes in your firewall (e.g., via a malicious Flash animation or JavaScript).

Solution

Filter incoming traffic to this port or disable this service.
