    SHOUTcast 1.8.9 remote bufferoverflow
    Type: Stack Overflow
    Priority: 2

    [1] Description
    [2] Vulnerable
    [3] The exploit
    [4] Vendor response

    [1] Description

    Nullsoft's SHOUTcast 1.8.9 contains a bufferoverflow that is remotely
    exploitable. This allows a malicious DJ to gain unauthorized shell
    access to the system.

    The attacker must know the DJ password in order to exploit this
    vulnerability. This will limit the impact of the bug, however
    if for example the shoutcast server is running as root, a DJ
    can obtain root privileges.

    An attacker is able to overwrite stackdata, including the saved eip
    register by sending the following data to port 8001:

    icy-name: netric
    icy-[doesn't matter]: [buffer]

    The icy-name buffer can be overflowed too, but this buffer is not
    stored on the stack.
