MiniSSDPd is a small daemon used by MiniUPnPc (a UPnP control point for IGD
devices) to speed up device discoveries. MiniSSDPd keeps memory of all UPnP
devices that announced themselves on the network through SSDP NOTIFY packets.
MiniSSDPd also has the ability to handle all SSDP traffic received on a
computer via the multicast group
MiniSSDPd receives NOTIFY packets and stores information contained for later
use by UPnP Control Points on the machine. MiniSSDPd receives M-SEARCH packets
and answers on behalf of the UPnP devices running on the machine. MiniUPnPd
and MiniUPnPc are designed to take automatically advantage of MiniSSDPd
running on the same computer. Just make sure that MiniSSDPd is started before
any other UPnP program on the computer.

* Non-maintainer upload.
* Fix CVE-2016-3178 and CVE-2016-3179. (Closes: #816759)
The minissdpd daemon contains a improper validation of array index
vulnerability (CWE-129) when processing requests sent to the Unix
socket at /var/run/minissdpd.sock the Unix socket can be accessed
by an unprivileged user to send invalid request causes an
out-of-bounds memory access that crashes the minissdpd daemon.

* Build-Depends: on freebsd-glue, and link with it, if we're building for

otherwise minissdpd FTBFS on kfreebsd.
