Streamripper extracts and records individual MP3 file tracks from
SHOUTcast streams.

Description
===========

Ulf Harnhammar, from the Debian Security Audit Project, has found that
Streamripper is vulnerable to multiple stack based buffer overflows
caused by improper bounds checking when processing malformed HTTP
headers.

Impact

execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running
Streamripper

Workaround
