MiniUPnP < 1.4 Multiple Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Plugin ID 64377


A network service running on the remote host has multiple vulnerabilities.


According to its banner, the version of MiniUPnP running on the remote host is prior to 1.4. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An out-of-bounds read error exists in the ProcessSSDPRequest() function in file minissdp.c that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition via a specially crafted M-SEARCH request. (CVE-2013-0229)

- A stack-based buffer overflow condition exists in the ExecuteSoapAction() function in the SOAPAction handler, due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a long quoted method, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.


Upgrade to MiniUPnP version 1.4 or later.
