Description

Updated MythTV packages to harden against SSDP reflection attacks

MythTV's UPNP component was suseptable to SSDP reflection attacks
and has been hardened to disallow SSDP device discovery from non-local
addresses as mitigation.

Additionally, a popular schedules retrieval service, Schedules Direct,
will deprecate the old URL used by MythTV to retrieve metadata on 1st
November 2015. This build of MythTV also updates the URL for this this
service for continued operation going forward.
