    Package        : icecast-server
    Problem type   : remote root exploit (and others)
    Debian-specific: no
    The icecast-server (a streaming music server) package as distributed
    in Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 has several security problems:
    * if a client added a / after the filename of a file to be downloaded
      the server would crash
    * by escaping dots as %2E it was possible to circumvent security measures
      and download arbitrary files
    * there were several buffer overflows that could be exploited to
      gain root access
    These have been fixed in version 1.3.10-1, and we strongly recommend
    that you upgrade your icecast-server package immediately.
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
