Debian Security Advisory DSA-1441-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Thijs Kinkhorst
December 28, 2007 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : peercast
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2007-6454
Debian Bug : 457300

Luigi Auriemma discovered that PeerCast, a P2P audio and video streaming
server, is vulnerable to a heap overflow in the HTTP server code, which
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute
arbitrary code via a long SOURCE request.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.1217.toots.20060314-1etch0.

The old stable distribution (sarge) does not contain peercast.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.1218+svn20071220+2.

We recommend that you upgrade your peercast packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.


Debian 4.0 (stable)
- -------------------

Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.
