Icecast list.cgi User-Agent XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote streaming media server is hosting a CGI script that is
affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description :

The remote server runs a version of Icecast that is as old or
older than version 1.3.12.

This version is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability
in the status display functionality. This issue is due to a failure
of the application to properly sanitize user-supplied input.

As a result of this vulnerability, it is possible for a remote
attacker to create a malicious link containing script code that will
be executed in the browser of an unsuspecting user when followed.

This may facilitate the theft of cookie-based authentication
credentials as well as other attacks.

Solution :

Debian has releasted a patch for the debian-based Icecast package.
