CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT
PACKAGE : icecast SUMMARY : Remote buffer overflow vulnerabilities DATE : 2001-03-19 11:15:00 ID : CLA-2001:387 RELEVANT RELEASES : 4.1, 4.2, 5.0, 5.1, 6.0
Matt Messier (email@example.com) and John Viega (firstname.lastname@example.org) have identified several buffer overflow and format strings problems in Icecast that could be remotely exploited.
Our latest update to this software changes the package to use an unprivileged user ("icecast") for the daemon, so the impact of this vulnerability is not as high. Recent distributions (CL >= 5.1) have this package compiled with StackGuard to make it more difficult to exploit buffer overflows.
