    Package        : icecast-server
    Vulnerability  : missing escape
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0781
    
    Markus Wörle discovered a cross site scripting problem in
    status-display (list.cgi) of the icecast internal webserver, an MPEG
    layer III streaming server.  The UserAgent variable is not properly
    html_escaped so that an attacker could cause the client to execute
    arbitrary Java script commands.
