PeerCast < 0.1218 servhs.cpp handShakeHTTP Function Remote Overflow

High

Synopsis

The remote web server suffers from a buffer overflow vulnerability.

Description

The version of PeerCast installed on the remote host fails to properly sanitize user-supplied data passed to the 'handShakeHTTP()' function. An unauthenticated attacker can leverage this issue to crash the affected application and to possibly execute arbitrary code on the remote host subject to the privileges of the user running PeerCast.

Solution

Upgrade to version 0.1218 or higher.
