Icecast XSL Parser Multiple Vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for XSL parser vulnerabilities in Icecast
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote media streaming server is affected by multiple issues.
The remote host is running a version of Icecast that suffers from two
flaws in its XSL parser.
- A Locally-Exploitable Buffer Overflow Vulnerability
The XSL parser does not check the size of XSL 'when', 'if',
and 'value-of' tag values before copying them into a finite
buffer in process memory. A possible hacker may potentially be
able to exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary
code if he can have a specially-crafted XSL file placed in
an Icecast folder.
- An Information Disclosure Vulnerability
The XSL parser fails to parse XSL files when the request ends
with a dot ('.') and instead simply returns the contents.
A possible hacker can exploit this to uncover sensitive information
contained in XSL files.
