Package : icecast-server
Vulnerability : missing escape
Problem-Type : remote

CVE ID : CAN-2004-0781

Markus W. discovered a cross site scripting problem in status-display (list.cgi) of the icecast internal webserver, an MPEG layer III streaming server. The UserAgent variable is not properly html_escaped so that an attacker could cause the client to execute arbitrary Java script commands.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 1.3.11-4.2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 1.3.12-8.

We recommend that you upgrade your icecast-server package.
