    Debian Bug     : 699316
    
    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.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1:1.6.6-5+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1:1.6.17-1.2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1:1.6.17-1.2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libupnp packages.
