A Scan attack is performed by cyber-assailants in a process of initial information-gathering known as footprinting. Scan attacks are used mostly to identify and enumerate active hosts on a network, and to determine the host operating system and available UDP and TCP network services that are running on the targeted hosts.
A successful Scan attack can result in information disclosure.
A Scan.Generic.UDP attack attempts to identify and enumerate UDP network services running on the targeted hosts. It does so by systematically sending multiple probe requests to a range of targeted ports on a host computer, with a goal of finding an open port and a service running on that port.
A successful Scan.Generic.UDP attack can result in information disclosure.
