    UPnP devices.
    
    CVE-2016-6255
    
      Matthew Garret discovered that libupnp by default allows any user to
      write to the filesystem of the host running a libupnp-based server
      application.
    
    CVE-2016-8863
    
      Scott Tenaglia discovered a heap buffer overflow vulnerability, that
      can lead to denial of service or remote code execution.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1:1.6.19+git20141001-1+deb8u1.
    
    For the testing (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions, these
    problems have been fixed in version 1:1.6.19+git20160116-1.2.
