Re: Security Flaws in Universal Plug-n-Play: Unplug, Don't Play

said by NOYB:

Wonder if there will be a BBR / DSL Reports tool for testing for UPnP security flaws.

Steve Gibson has announced he'll be adding a Shields Up scan and hopes to have it up by this weekend at »grc.com.

Steve often gets tagged as "alarmist" but may be justified in this case. He and Leo covered it rather well in today's Security Now: »twit.tv/show/security-now/389

This thing is a multi-level-fiasco. Vendors are using old code that was fixed, simplified sample code that never should be used and to top it off... it's exposed to the world by some kind of pure incompetence or neglect.
