Ubuntu 14.04 LTS / 16.04 LTS / 17.10 : miniupnpc vulnerabilities (USN-3562-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 106678

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

It was discovered that MiniUPnP incorrectly handled memory. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user running an application that uses the MiniUPnP library.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected libminiupnpc10 and / or libminiupnpc8 packages.
