Package : icecast2 Version : 2.4.0-1.1+deb8u2 CVE ID : CVE-2018-18820 Debian Bug : 912611

A buffer overflow was discovered in the URL-authentication backend of the icecast2, the popular open source streaming media server. If the backend is enabled, then any malicious HTTP client can send a request for specific resource including a crafted header which can overwrite the server's stack contents, leading to denial of service and potentially remote code execution.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version 2.4.0-1.1+deb8u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your icecast2 packages.
