Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:078: 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-2005:078 (squid).



Squid 2.5, when processing the configuration file, parses empty Access Control
Lists (ACLs), including proxy_auth ACLs without defined auth schemes, in a way
that effectively removes arguments, which could permit remote attackers to
bypass intended ACLs if the administrator ignores the parser warnings.
(CVE-2005-0194)

Race condition in Squid 2.5.STABLE7 to 2.5.STABLE9, when using the Netscape
Set-Cookie recommendations for handling cookies in caches, may cause Set-Cookie
headers to be sent to other users, which permits attackers to steal the related
cookies. (CVE-2005-0626)

Squid 2.5.STABLE7 and earlier permits remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (segmentation fault) by aborting the connection during a (1) PUT or (2)
POST request, which causes Squid to access previosuly freed memory.
(CVE-2005-0718)

In addition, due to subtle bugs in the previous backported updates of squid
(Bugzilla #14209), all the squid-2.5 versions have been updated to
squid-2.5.STABLE9 with all the STABLE9 patches from the squid developers.

The updated packages are patched to fix these problems.
