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.

outlook keeps asking for a password even when you have entered it correctly several times, that’s a pretty common issue which most outlook users have to undergo while accessing outlook email. Several reasons could become a culprit for this problem like the credentials manager is saved with wrong credentials or the Remember password option is disabled in your system. Here is how you can fix the error.
• First of all, go to the control panel, select user accounts, visit the credentials manager and rectify the user name and password.
• The next step is to visit the User accounts again, go to Email Accounts, and checkmark against Remember password.
• If nothing of the above steps worked out then you should create a new Outlook profile to fix the issue.
Still, facing a problem? Connect with the outlook experts and get the problem resolved.
