HIGH: Open Ubiquiti Report



This report identifies hosts that have the Ubiquiti Discovery service running and accessible on the Internet.

These services have the potential to be used in amplification attacks by criminals that wish to perform denial of service attacks. In addition, they expose a large amount of information about the system running the service.

The service is tested by sending a UDP packet containing a four-byte payload to UDP port 10001.

You can track Ubiquiti scan results on our Dashboard.

Severity levels are described here.
