Details

Updated icecast packages are available which fix a number of security issues.

Icecast is a mp3-based broadcasting system. Buffer overflows in Icecast
1.3.11 and earlier allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a
long HTTP GET request. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2002-0177 to this issue.

Additional buffer overflow vulnerabilities exist in previous versions of
Icecast that are also fixed by this update. These vulnerabilities can
cause denial of service attacks as well as arbitrary code execution. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the names CAN-2001-0784, CAN-2001-1083, CAN-2001-1229, and CAN-2001-1230 to
these issues.

Users of Icecast are advised to update to the errata packages containing
Icecast 1.3.12 which is not vulnerable to these issues.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.
