Publication date: 08 Jul 2021
URL: https://advisories.mageia.org/MGASA-2021-0319.html
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases: 7, 8
CVE: CVE-2021-29462

The Portable SDK for UPnP Devices is an SDK for development of UPnP device and
control point applications. The server part of pupnp (libupnp) appears to be
vulnerable to DNS rebinding attacks because it does not check the value of the
'Host' header. This can be mitigated by using DNS revolvers which block
DNS-rebinding attacks. The vulnerability is fixed in version 1.14.6 and later
(CVE-2021-29462).
