Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA651] DSA-651-1 squid

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-651-1 squid

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Squid, the internet
object cache, the popular WWW proxy cache. The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures Project identifies the following vulnerabilities:
"infamous41md" discovered a buffer overflow in the parser for
Gopher responses which will lead to memory corruption and usually
crash Squid.
"infamous41md" discovered an integer overflow in the receiver of
WCCP (Web Cache Communication Protocol) messages. A possible hacker
could send a specially crafted UDP datagram that will cause Squid
to crash.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.4.6-2woody5.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.5.7-4.
We recommend that you upgrade your squid package.
