PeerCast is a client and server for P2P-radio network
Luigi Auriemma reported a heap-based buffer overflow within the
"handshakeHTTP()" function when processing HTTP requests.
<impact type="high">
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted request to the
vulnerable server, possibly resulting in the remote execution of
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the PeerCast
server, usually "nobody".
There is no known workaround at this time.
All PeerCast users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-sound/peercast-0.1218&quot;</code>
