Rule Category

PROTOCOL-SCADA -- Snort alerted on SCADA protocol activity. SCADA is used in Industrial Control Systems (ICS), programmable logic controllers for large scale systems, such as water treatment facilities. SCADA systems often require no authentication and use generic commands that are hard to screen for. Snort rules look for specific hardware and the traffic protocols they use, as these are often tied to a specific port or URI request.

Alert Message

PROTOCOL-SCADA Tri PLC Nano 10 PLC denial of service attempt

Rule Explanation

Triangle Research International (aka Tri) Nano-10 PLC devices with firmware before r81 use an incorrect algorithm for bounds checking of data in Modbus/TCP packets, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (networking outage) via a crafted packet to TCP port 502.
