FS#646 - [avahi] blacklist package since it's a zeroconf implementation

Avahi is a zero-configuration networking implementation that contains critical security issues because mDNS operates under a different trust model than unicast DNS trusting the entire network rather than a designated DNS server, it is vulnerable to spoofing attacks by any system within the multicast IP range. Like SNMP and many other network management protocols, it can also be used by attackers to quickly gain detailed knowledge of the network and its machines. [0]

Since it violates the Hyperbola Social Contract , Avahi should be blacklisted.
