Seems kind of crazy to me that something intended to help local peripherals needs to be listening to Chinese hackers on the other side of the world. What does discovery services even mean? I looked in some vulnerability database, and sure enough minissdpd had a whole slew of vulnerabilities listed.
How can they have this enabled in the default distribution? Seriously, its like install Debian, get hacked. Anyway, my main question is: This is a service which allows for devices to "auto discover" one another on your network and advertise services that they can either provide or are looking for to consume.
