Icecast Directory Traversal Vulnerability

Icecast is an open source audio-streaming server for both Unix and Microsoft Windows systems.

Icecast does not filter encoded characters from URLs when receiving web requests. If a remote attacker crafts a URL containing the ASCII equivalent of directory traversal characters, it is possible to escape Icecast's "root" directory. This will allow the attacker to view files readable by the ownership and group membership of the icecast server.
