Homeland Security: Disable UPnP as tens of millions at risk


Summary: The US government is warning to disable a common networking feature after bugs left tens of millions of hardware devices vulnerable to attacks by hackers and malware.

The US Department of Homeland Security is next in line to warn of a serious threat to networking devices, such as scanners, printers, computers, and routers.

It comes only a few hours after a white paper was released by security researchers at Rapid7, which claimed that approximately 40 to 50 million devices worldwide are vulnerable to infiltration by hackers as a result of a flaw in a networking protocol.
