SHOUTcast Server sc_serv.log file world readable admin password
|shoutcast-scservlog-world-readable (9775)||Medium Risk|
SHOUTcast creates the sc_serv.log file with world readable permissions. A local attacker could send a specially-crafted GET request to port 8001, which would cause the administrative password to be written to the 'sc_serv.log' file in plain text. An attacker could then access the log file and recover the administrative password, which could then be used to gain administrative access to the SHOUTcast Server.
No remedy available as of September 1, 2014.
