<description>
<p>
Stefan Cornelius from Secunia Research reported multiple buffer
overflows in the http_parse_sc_header(), http_get_pls() and
http_get_m3u() functions in lib/http.c when parsing overly long HTTP
headers, or pls and m3u playlists with overly long entries.

<impact type="normal">
<p>
A remote attacker could entice a user to connect to a malicious server,
possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the application.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>

</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-sound/streamripper-1.64.0&quot;</code>
