Since the Avahi NULL UDP DoS  has been patched and since every one
can test this vulnerability with every tool that sends UDP packet.
I'm sharing an attached script that I wrote the other days to
automatically discover hosts on the local network using the DNS Service
Discovery protocol and test each host to see if it's vulnerable
(you will DoS your hosts or network). The script uses the prerule.
I thought this can help Nmap pen-testers. I've tested the script
on some default ubuntu machines and on an embedded device, yes avahi
can run on some embedded devices.
Does a normal Nmap UDP port scan also kill Avahi? I guess not, because
UDP payloads are enabled by default and we have one for port 5353. What
about with --data-length 0?
Yes adding the --data-length 0 option will cause the DoS.
I think this script is good to add anyway. As you say, Avahi can run on
some embedded devices that might not get fixed so soon, so it's good to
be able to detect this. And this fits in well with your role as
vulnerability/exploitation NSE developer this summer. Please commit it.
