ICECast libshout remote buffer overflow Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check icecast version

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote server runs a version of ICECast, an open source
streaming audio server, which is older than version 1.3.9.

Icecast and the libshout library are affected by a remote buffer overflow because they do
not properly check bounds of data send from clients.

As a result of this vulnerability, it is possible for a remote attacker to
cause a stack overflow and then execute arbitrary code with the privilege of the server.

*** Nessus reports this vulnerability using only
*** information that was gathered.

Solution : Upgrade to a newer version.
