New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Multiple stack-based buffer overflows were discovered in libupnp, a library used for handling the Universal Plug and Play protocol. HD Moore from Rapid7 discovered that SSDP queries where not correctly handled by the unique_service_name() function.

An attacker sending carefully crafted SSDP queries to a daemon built on libupnp could generate a buffer overflow, overwriting the stack, leading to the daemon crash and possible remote code execution.

Solution

Upgrade the libupnp packages.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 1:1.6.6-5+squeeze1.
