Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA576] DSA-576-1 squid

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-576-1 squid

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several security vulnerabilities have been discovered in Squid, the
internet object cache, the popular WWW proxy cache. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
problems:
It is possible to bypass access lists and scan arbitrary hosts and
ports in the network through cachemgr.cgi, which is installed by
default. This update disables this feature and introduces a
configuration file (/etc/squid/cachemgr.conf) to control
this behavior.
The asn_parse_header function (asn1.c) in the SNMP module for
Squid permits remote attackers to cause a denial of service via
certain SNMP packets with negative length fields that causes a
memory allocation error.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.4.6-2woody4.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.5.7-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your squid package.
