Use CVE-2016-6255. Another observation is that it is not necessary for a user to write a libupnp-based application in order to encounter the vulnerability. (One might conceivably argue that, if exploitation required a custom application, the application author would be responsible for verifying that the code met expectations as far as whether a web server should exist and what types of read and write access should be allowed.) Instead, anyone can build the unpatched code from GitHub, go to the upnp/sample directory, and execute the tv_device script with no arguments. This apparently starts the web server on port 49152 by default. The web server accepts unauthenticated POST requests and stores the data to the client-specified filename within the upnp/sample/web directory. It also accepts unauthenticated GET requests for those files. Common user expectations, based on experience with any popular general-purpose web server, are that defaulting to unauthenticated POSTs with readable uploads should not happen unless specifically called out in the documentation. This is the main reason for the CVE. Also, if the POST behavior were important, the web server should at least follow RFC 2616 section 9.5 and return a 201 status when it creates a file in the upnp/sample/web directory. It currently returns 200, which makes it somewhat harder for a person auditing an application to notice that the POSTs are actually successful. - -- CVE Assignment Team M/S M300, 202 Burlington Road, Bedford, MA 01730 USA [ A PGP key is available for encrypted communications at http://cve.mitre.org/cve/request_id.html ] -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1 iQIcBAEBCAAGBQJXj9YtAAoJEHb/MwWLVhi2nu4QAIIcgm14o54j2URjIQ7GD1+k 1s1NQKsZJVGtTjiVtUgHoMmnkfRw1no2k4kHLF/FuJYzGj6mjzyH7czgAruFvNFs SPuZtGH38LaQdjZ9DFXhdmTNR/i8eIyQozdXc8XPefxW327o5vlXMdh/LvrcBeCN RZff98ZH1pizCBQXk8bWRgMEdSfXvI816eCeme2zoJ+69UKJVxs68mHbt0kJdnPc vrawWBDSLxIIFLEY0Rj0qq6dQqmrirst5rYoLrGelZdEyZU4AKV6f2YzOgQCWze5 7HW6Cjpl69mXF86DcQ1+zaPITPga0iE3dQnVjvBp/x8Zm/gRd0lia3ewhZAp5NjQ faE8YgVOEI/JCyPm/1xqV1Ol952ebb6fM6s5nkpug0Ejt5EZdFFbHggUKl6njUsm 5+CyQHfXNe4s6xmevW+QIX23Rmx0Ox/ZcXTJ2kKDrLuxVxWyXceo7hcSNz4PaP/T BUSqJN2PessLWB8FRG0idF9+vQNrOMdsHxM6cG4VDWgOmN45RRnqvVLjaqOQbtL4 EH6TfvQynAvOobpiHmKT3E4yUlJU9nto1j5AyA6jgez7J2aO+x4dGmFziS3kkEJo B2+T2aOlD8xI5lIfimy6wKNUUtCVLBhX666G3QCZ40JwzqVCyaInXuUSgTJNLk6s xrXrtoajVVmMZ/mUOlLC =Aj9J -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
