One of WatchGuard’s partners, Trend Micro, found that many devices are still using an older version of a common Universal Plug-n-Play (UPnP) library that suffers from a very serious vulnerability. This new research is very similar HD Moore’s UPnP disclosures a few years ago; the difference being Trend Micro specifically found the issue affecting many Internet of Things (IoT) devices and mobile apps. Watch my vlog below to learn more about it.
