Version 8.1.2 is a security update only. 

Some security issues have been identified in the REST APIs of the control point that is embedded in Twonky Server since 7.0This security flaw allowed an attacker to overwrite a file that is accesible by the Twonky Server with other content utilizing the “nmc/rpc/upload” or “nmc/rpc/download” APIs. 

In addition, the “rpc/backup_metadata” call could have been used to overwrite any file that is  accesible by the Twonky Server  with the Twonky Server database. This API is discontinued from 8.1.2 on, as a backup of the Twonky Server database can be done directly by a script without the need for this API.


Security Fixes

  • fixed a security issue in NMC rpc API "/nmc/rpc/upload"
  • fixed a security issue in NMC rpc API "/nmc/rpc/download"


  • discontinued rpc call “rpc/backup_metadata” that had a security flaw
