- More information:
Juliane Holzt discovered that Icecast2, a streaming media server, could dereference a NULL pointer when URL authentication is configured and the stream_auth URL is trigged by a client without setting any credentials. This could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash).
For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 2.4.0-1.1+deb8u1.
For the testing distribution (stretch), this problem will be fixed in version 2.4.2-1.
For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2.4.2-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your icecast2 packages.
