DLA-1589-1 icecast2 -- LTS security update

Date Reported:
26 Nov 2018
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 914393.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2018-19115.
More information:

keepalived has a heap-based buffer overflow when parsing HTTP status codes resulting in DoS or possibly unspecified other impact, because extract_status_code in lib/html.c has no validation of the status code and instead writes an unlimited amount of data to the heap.

For Debian 8 Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 1:1.2.13-1+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your keepalived packages.
