Icecast / libshout Multiple Remote Overflows

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote media server is affected by multiple buffer overflow
vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote server runs a version of Icecast, an open source
streaming audio server, which is older than version 1.3.9.

Icecast and the libshout library are affected by a remote buffer
overflow because they do not properly check bounds of data send from
clients.

As a result of this vulnerability, it is possible for a remote
attacker to cause a stack overflow and then execute arbitrary code
with the privilege of the server.

*** Nessus reports this vulnerability using only
*** information that was gathered.
