Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:034: 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-2005:034 (squid).



More vulnerabilities were discovered in the squid server:

The LDAP handling of search filters was inadequate which could be abused to
permit logins using severial variants of a single login name, possibly bypassing
explicit access controls (CVE-2005-0173).

Minor problems in the HTTP header parsing code that could be used for cache
poisoning (CVE-2005-0174 and CVE-2005-0175).

A buffer overflow in the WCCP handling code permited remote attackers to cause a
Denial of Service and could potentially permit for the execution of arbitrary
code by using a long WCCP packet.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent these problems.
