Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: SHOUTcast server: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200607-05)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: July 09, 2006
Updated: July 29, 2006
Bug(s): #136721, #136221
ID: 200607-05

Synopsis

The SHOUTcast server is vulnerable to a file disclosure vulnerability and multiple XSS vulnerabilities.

Background

SHOUTcast server is a streaming audio server.

Affected Packages

Package: media-sound/shoutcast-server-bin
Vulnerable: < 1.9.7
Unaffected: >= 1.9.7
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

The SHOUTcast server is vulnerable to a file disclosure when the server receives a specially crafted GET request. Furthermore it also fails to sanitize the input passed to the "Description", "URL", "Genre", "AIM", and "ICQ" fields.

Impact

By sending a specially crafted GET request to the SHOUTcast server, the attacker can read any file that can be read by the SHOUTcast process. Furthermore it is possible that various request variables could also be exploited to execute arbitrary scripts in the context of a victim's browser.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All SHOUTcast server users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-sound/shoutcast-server-bin-1.9.7"
