Debian DSA-2614-1 : libupnp - several vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Plugin ID 64395
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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


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.


Upgrade the libupnp packages.

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