Synopsis
========

A buffer overflow vulnerability has been discovered in Streamripper,
allowing for user-assisted execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

Streamripper is a tool for extracting and recording mp3 files from a
Shoutcast stream.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package                   /  Vulnerable  /             Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  media-sound/streamripper      < 1.62.2                  >= 1.62.2

Description
===========

Chris Rohlf discovered several boundary errors in the
httplib_parse_sc_header() function when processing HTTP headers.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to connect to a malicious
streaming server, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running Streamripper.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Streamripper users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-sound/streamripper-1.62.2"
