More than 150,000 Internet-facing printers were scanned, located, and used

  • If your router has UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) enabled, your printers, (or anything else on your network), may have punched a hole through your border router’s stateful NAT firewall to make itself “available” to anyone on the public Internet in the world.

Disable UPnP (Universal Plug-and-Play) on Your Network

Unicast, Broadcast, Multicast

  • The Internet Protocol and other network addressing systems recognize three main addressing methodologies:
    • Unicast addressing uses a one-to-one association between the destination address and the network endpoint: each destination address uniquely identifies a single receiver endpoint.
    • Broadcast addressing uses a one-to-many association, datagrams are routed from a single sender to all endpoints, in the broadcast domain, simultaneously in a single transmission. The network automatically replicates datagrams as needed for all network segments (links) that contain an eligible receiver.
    • Multicast addressing is the sending of the same message simultaneously to to multiple endpoints simultaneously in a single transmission, but not to all. The network automatically replicates datagrams as needed for all network segments (links) that contain an eligible receiver.

Collision and Broadcast Domains

Telemetry is an automated communications process by which measurements and other data are collected at remote or inaccessible points and transmitted to receiving equipment for monitoring.

How would you know that a network has been compromised?

  • [A paid membership is not necessary to access a lot of the material]
  • Download Cisco Packet Tracer and bring it to our next class.

Check if your router has UPnP, or any other ports/protocols, exposed to the Internet

  • Go to GRC.com > Services Menu > ShieldsUP!
  • Run GRC’s Instant UPnP Exposure Test
  • Run GRC’s “All Service Ports Test
  • Report your results at our next class:
    • Was UPnP exposed to the public?
    • Did you find any open ports?
    • Were all port stealth?
