Streamripper is a tool for extracting and recording mp3 files from a
Shoutcast stream.
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">
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.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Streamripper users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-sound/streamripper-1.64.0&quot;</code>
