Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Icecast: Denial of Service (GLSA 201508-03)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: August 15, 2015
Bug(s): #545968
ID: 201508-03

Synopsis

A bug in the Icecast code handling source client URL authentication
causes a Denial of Service condition.


Background

Icecast is an open source alternative to shoutcast that supports mp3,
ogg (vorbis/theora) and aac streaming.


Affected Packages

Package: net-misc/icecast
Vulnerable: < 2.4.2
Unaffected: >= 2.4.2
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

When stream_auth handler is defined for URL authentication and a request
is sent without login credentials, a Denial of Service condition can
occur.


Impact

A remote attacker could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround

Users of affected versions can change stream_auth mountpoints to use
password authentication instead.


Resolution

All icecast users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/icecast-2.4.2"
