|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: Streamripper: Multiple remote buffer overflows (GLSA 200609-01)
Date: September 06, 2006
Streamripper is vulnerable to multiple remote buffer overflows, leading to the execution of arbitrary code.
Streamripper extracts and records individual MP3 file tracks from SHOUTcast streams.
Vulnerable: < 1.61.26
Unaffected: >= 1.61.26
Architectures: All supported architectures
Ulf Harnhammar, from the Debian Security Audit Project, has found that Streamripper is vulnerable to multiple stack based buffer overflows caused by improper bounds checking when processing malformed HTTP headers.
By enticing a user to connect to a malicious server, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Streamripper
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Streamripper users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-sound/streamripper-1.61.26"
