Synopsis
=======
The SHOUTcast server is vulnerable to a file disclosure vulnerability
and multiple XSS vulnerabilities.

Background
=========
SHOUTcast server is a streaming audio server.

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package                           /  Vulnerable  /     Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  media-sound/shoutcast-server-bin       < 1.9.7           >= 1.9.7

Description
==========
The SHOUTcast server is vulnerable to a file disclosure when the server
receives a specially crafted GET request. Furthermore it also fails to
sanitize the input passed to the "Description", "URL", "Genre", "AIM",
and "ICQ" fields.

Impact
=====
By sending a specially crafted GET request to the SHOUTcast server, the
attacker can read any file that can be read by the SHOUTcast process.
=46urthermore it is possible that various request variables could also be
exploited to execute arbitrary scripts in the context of a victim's
browser.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========
All SHOUTcast server users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # 
emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-sound/shoutcast-server-bin-1.9.7"
