  Service Location Protocol Service Type 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 service type request 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.
