The remote SUSE host is missing a security update.


The remote SUSE Linux SUSE15 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the openSUSE-SU-2021:2153-1 advisory.

- An issue was discovered in GUPnP before 1.0.7 and 1.1.x and 1.2.x before 1.2.5. It allows DNS rebinding. A remote web server can exploit this vulnerability to trick a victim's browser into triggering actions against local UPnP services implemented using this library. Depending on the affected service, this could be used for data exfiltration, data tempering, etc. (CVE-2021-33516)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Update the affected libgupnp-1_2-0, libgupnp-1_2-0-32bit, libgupnp-devel and / or typelib-1_0-GUPnP-1_0 packages.
