GLSA-200901-05 : Streamripper: Multiple vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 35349
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200901-05 (Streamripper: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Stefan Cornelius from Secunia Research reported multiple buffer overflows in the http_parse_sc_header(), http_get_pls() and http_get_m3u() functions in lib/http.c when parsing overly long HTTP headers, or pls and m3u playlists with overly long entries.
A remote attacker could entice a user to connect to a malicious server, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Streamripper users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-sound/streamripper-1.64.0'
