SHOUTCAST <= 1.9.4 Vulnerability, Exploit Available

On December 26, 2005, Secunia released an advisory regarding a vulnerabilty in Shoutcast.  We've received a report about a few sites detecting odd log entries that fit the vulnerability description, with corresponding server crashes over the past few days.  An exploit has been published on, at least, one site.  The solution is to update to the latest version (v.1.9.5).  The advisory is available at Secunia.

The default port for SHOUTcast is 8000--Dshield shows a spike in targets on the 14th and more recently.
