  Service Location Protocol Service Registration Request

Category: INFO      

The Service Location Protocol (SLP) provides a flexible and scalable framework for providing hosts with access to information about the existence, location, and configuration of networked services. Hit to this signature indicates attempt to register a service from outside of the network, which could be an attempt to exploit the SLP protocol to launch a denial-of-service attack with a significant amplification factor. The destination machine may require a careful inspection if such service is being exposed to the external network inadvertently.
