NAT-PMP Detection (remote network)

High Nessus Plugin ID 73124


Nessus was able to obtain information about the remote network.


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.


Filter incoming traffic to UDP port 5351.
