SHOUTcast Server icy- remote buffer overflow
|shoutcast-icy-remote-bo (9251)||High Risk|
SHOUTcast Server is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking of the icy-[any name] parameter. By sending an overly long string to the server using a vulnerable icy- parameter, a remote attacker with a valid DJ password could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary commands on the system with the same privileges as the SHOUTcast Server.
Upgrade to the latest version of SHOUTcast (1.8.12 or later), when it becomes available from the SHOUTcast Web site. See References.
