icecast Input Validation Error in HTTP UserAgent Field Permits Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1011046
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1011046
CVE Reference:   CVE-2004-0781   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Aug 24 2004
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information

Version(s): 1.3.12 and prior versions (it is not clear if version 2.0.x is affected or not)
Description:   An input validation vulnerability was reported in icecast in the internal web server. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Debian reported that Markus Worle discovered that the status display (list.cgi) does not properly filter HTML code from the user-supplied HTTP UserAgent header. A remote user can submit a specially crafted request so that when a target user views the status display, arbitrary scripting code will be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the icecast software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

The flaw resides in 'src/http.c'.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the icecast software, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.
Solution:   No upstream solution was available at the time of this entry.

A patch is pending for Debian GNU/Linux.
