miniupnpc vulnerability

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 15.10


An application using the MiniUPnP library could be made to crash or run
programs as your login if it received specially crafted network traffic.

Software Description:
- miniupnpc: UPnP IGD client lightweight library


USN-2780-1 fixed a vulnerability in the MiniUPnP library in Ubuntu
12.04 LTS, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 15.04. This update provides
the corresponding update for Ubuntu 15.10.

Original advisory details:

Aleksandar Nikolic discovered a buffer overflow vulnerability in the
XML parser functionality of the MiniUPnP library. A remote attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (application crash) or
possibly execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user running
an application that uses the MiniUPnP library.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 15.10:
 libminiupnpc10                  1.9.20140610-2ubuntu2

After a standard system update you need to restart applications using
the MiniUPnP library to make all the necessary changes.
