MDKSA-2005:014: 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-2005:014 (squid).

'infamous41md' discovered two vulnerabilities in the squid proxy cache server.
The first is a buffer overflow in the Gopher response parser which leads to
memory corruption and would usually crash squid (CVE-2005-0094). The second is
an integer overflow in the receiver of WCCP (Web Cache Communication Protocol)
messages. A possible hacker could send a specially crafted UDP datagram that would
cause squid to crash (CVE-2005-0095).

The updated packages have been patched to prevent these problems.
