Just ran Wireshark with Brave again and it is worse than the last time I ran it. In the 20k+ lines of pcap data, I found many which pinged every device on the network:
913 22.802650499 <LOCAL_IP_ADDRESS> 22.214.171.124 MDNS 259 Standard query response 0x0000 PTR, cache flush **####-**iPad.local PTR, cache flush **####-**iPad.local NSEC, cache flush 2.F.7.2.E.A.4.C.1.3.4.F.6.B.126.96.36.199.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.8.E.F.ip6.arpa NSEC, cache flush <LOCAL_IP_ADDRESS>.in-addr.arpa OPT
Is this a security concern? I’m going to close this browser and re-run with Firefox to see what if it pings all local connections and will post results after. Thank you in advance.
NOTE: I replaced the info in bold with generic info.
Firefox did not report any of the connected devices on my local network. Can I turn this off in Brave? I don’t see a GUI way to do it.
