This report identifies hosts with SNMPv2 publicly accessible, that are responding to the community “public”, and that have the potential to be used in amplification attacks by criminals who wish to perform denial of service attacks.
The OID being probed for is 184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.0 (sysDescr) and if the host responds to that probe, the host is then probed for OID 18.104.22.168.22.214.171.124.0 (sysName). The analogous shell commands would be:
snmpget -c public -v 2c [ip] 126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.0
snmpget -c public -v 2c [ip] 184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.0
