    vulnerability in the XML parser functionality of miniupnpc, a UPnP IGD
    client lightweight library. A remote attacker can take advantage of this
    flaw to cause an application using the miniupnpc library to crash, or
    potentially to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
    running the application.
