Some vulnerabilities have been reported in SHOUTcast, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct script insertion attacks or gain knowledge of sensitive information.
1) Input passed to the "Description", "URL", "Genre", "AIM", and "ICQ" fields when defining the broadcast properties is not properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to inject arbitrary HTML and script code, which is executed in a user's browser session in context of an affected site when the malicious user data is viewed when accessing the main page.
Successful exploitation requires that the malicious DJ has broadcast access to the vulnerable server.
The vulnerabilities have been confirmed in version 1.9.5. Other versions may also be affected.
2) An input validation error within the handling of "/content" requests can be exploited to view arbitrary files accessible by the SHOUTcast process via directory traversal attacks.
The vulnerability has been reported in version 1.9.5 and 1.9.6. Prior versions may also be affected.
