ICECast libshout remote buffer overflow

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check icecast version

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote server runs a version of ICECast, an open source

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.
