All supported architectures
GNUMP3d is vulnerable to directory traversal and cross-site scripting
attacks that may result in information disclosure or the compromise of a
GNUMP3d is a streaming server for MP3s, OGG vorbis files, movies and
other media formats.
Steve Kemp reported about two cross-site scripting attacks that are
related to the handling of files (CVE-2005-3424, CVE-2005-3425). Also
reported is a directory traversal vulnerability which comes from the
attempt to sanitize input paths (CVE-2005-3123).
A remote attacker could exploit this to disclose sensitive information
or inject and execute malicious script code, potentially compromising
the victim's browser.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All GNUMP3d users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-sound/gnump3d-2.9_pre7"
