Description

The Ubiquiti Discovery (ubnt-discover) protocol suffers from allowing UDP amplification attacks, which can be used against other assets typically in the form of distributed reflected denial of service (DRDoS) attacks. The amplification factor for this protocol is 30-35x the size of the request.

Solution(s)

  • ubnt-discover-restrict

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
