Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: MiniUPnPc: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 201801-08)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: 2018-01-07
Bug(s): #562684
ID: 201801-08


A vulnerability in MiniUPnPc might allow remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code.


The client library, enabling applications to access the services
provided by an UPnP “Internet Gateway Device” present on the network.

Affected Packages

Package: net-libs/miniupnpc
Vulnerable: < 2.0.20170509
Unaffected: >= 2.0.20170509
Architectures: All supported architectures


An exploitable buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the XML parser
functionality of the MiniUPnP library.


A remote attacker, by enticing a user to connect to a malicious server,
could cause the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running a MiniUPnPc linked application.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All MiniUPnPc users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-libs/miniupnpc-2.0.20170509"
