What vulnerabilities will I be facing with during using a server as a audio streaming server? Please explain all possibilities and all need-to-know stuff.
The first thing made me think of vulnerabilities was that login users and passwords are not used in hash - at least while using IceCast - and they are all clear text! Is there a way to use hash instead or not? If not so, what vulnerabilities may it cause?
What else may be harmful, - ports and etc - anything?? And what should I be aware of during configuring my streaming server?
More Info on what I’m using:
I’m using IceCast for the server, and EZStream as a source client for the Icecast streaming server (i.e. client/listener(s)).
And I'm Running this project on Both Debian Jessie and CentOS 7 - not launched yet, still in its test-like beta version, so I can change anything.
I’m open to any suggestions, even if it’s about doing things from scratch.
