Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:112: squid

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the squid package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:112 (squid).


iDEFENSE discovered a Denial of Service vulnerability in squid version
2.5.STABLE6 and previous. The problem is due to an ASN1 parsing error where
certain header length combinations can slip through the validations performed by
the ASN1 parser, leading to the server assuming there is heap corruption or some
other exceptional condition, and closing all current connections then
restarting.
Squid 2.5.STABLE7 has been released to address this issue
the provided packages
are patched to fix the issue.
