<description>
<p>
nnp discovered multiple vulnerabilities in the XML-RPC handler in the
file webserver.c. The ws_addarg() function contains a format string
vulnerability, as it does not properly sanitize username and password
data from the "Authorization: Basic" HTTP header line (CVE-2007-5825).
The ws_decodepassword() and ws_getheaders() functions do not correctly
handle empty Authorization header lines, or header lines without a ':'
character, leading to NULL pointer dereferences (CVE-2007-5824).
</p>
</description>
<impact type="high">
<p>
A remote attacker could send specially crafted HTTP requests to the web
server in the Multi-Threaded DAAP Daemon, possibly leading to the
execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the
web server or a Denial of Service.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Multi-Threaded DAAP Daemon users should upgrade to the latest
version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-sound/mt-daapd-0.2.4.1&quot;</code>
</resolution>
