Description Johannes Segitz 2016-07-21 09:28:24 UTC

A vulnerability was found in libupnp. If there's no registered handler for a POST request, the default behaviour is to write it to the filesyste. This allows attacker to store arbitrary data on deployed devices.

Fix: https://github.com/mjg59/pupnp-code/commit/be0a01bdb83395d9f3a5ea09c1308a4f1a972cbd
