PeerCast < 0.1217 procConnectArgs Function Remote Overflow



The remote web server suffers from a buffer overflow vulnerability.


The version of PeerCast installed on the remote host copies the supplied option string without limit into a finite-size buffer. An unauthenticated attacker can leverage this issue to crash the affected application and possibly to execute arbitrary code on the remote host subject to the privileges of the user running PeerCast.


Upgrade to version 0.1217 or higher.
