Package        : peercast
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2007-6454
Debian Bug     : 457300

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.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.


Debian 4.0 (stable)
- -------------------

Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.
