    Posted By LinuxSecurity Advisories
    Luigi Auriemma discovered that PeerCast, a P2P audio and video streaming server, is vulnerable to a heap overflow in the HTTP server code, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via a long SOURCE request.

    Luigi Auriemma discovered that PeerCast, a P2P audio and video streaming
    server, is vulnerable to a heap overflow in the HTTP server code, which
    allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute
    arbitrary code via a long SOURCE request.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.1217.toots.20060314-1etch0.
    
    The old stable distribution (sarge) does not contain peercast.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.1218+svn20071220+2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your peercast packages.
