Synopsis
========

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

Background
==========

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

Affected packages
=================

——————————————————————-
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
——————————————————————-
1 net-libs/miniupnpc = 2.0.20170509

Description
===========

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

Impact
======

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.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All MiniUPnPc users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge –sync
# emerge –ask –oneshot -v “>=net-libs/miniupnpc-2.0.20170509″
