UPnP Flaw Leaves Millions of Networked Devices Vulnerable to Attack

Maximum PC: Researchers at Rapid7, a provider of vulnerability management, compliance, and penetration testing solutions for web applications, network, and database security, warns that the popular Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) protocol is flawed, exposing tens of millions of network devices to at least one of three different types of attacks. More than 23 million Internet-connected devices are vulnerable to remote code execution through a single UDP packet, along with tens of millions more via remote discovery on the web.
