Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Icecast: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 201811-09)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: 2018-11-10
Bug(s): #670148
ID: 201811-09


A vulnerability in Icecast might allow remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code.


Icecast is an open source alternative to SHOUTcast that supports MP3,
OGG (Vorbis/Theora) and AAC streaming.

Affected Packages

Package: net-misc/icecast
Vulnerable: < 2.4.4
Unaffected: >= 2.4.4
Architectures: All supported architectures


Multiple buffer overflows have been discovered in Icecast. Please review
the CVE identifier referenced below for details.


A remote attacker, by sending a specially crafted request using
authentication type “url”, could possibly execute arbitrary code with
the privileges of the process, or cause a Denial of Service condition.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All Icecast users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/icecast-2.4.4"
