Synopsis
=======
PeerCast suffers from a format string vulnerability that could allow
arbitrary code execution.

Background
=========
PeerCast is a media streaming system based on P2P technology.

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package               /  Vulnerable  /                 Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  media-sound/peercast      < 0.1212                      >= 0.1212

Description
==========
James Bercegay of the GulfTech Security Research Team discovered that
PeerCast insecurely implements formatted printing when receiving a
request with a malformed URL.

Impact
=====
A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a request
with a specially crafted URL to a PeerCast server to execute arbitrary
code.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
