Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2004-242: squid

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the squid packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated squid package that fixes a security vulnerability in
the NTLM authentication helper is now available.

Squid is a full-featured Web proxy cache.

A buffer overflow was found within the NTLM authentication helper
routine. If Squid is configured to use the NTLM authentication helper,
a remote attacker could potentially execute arbitrary code by sending a
lengthy password. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0541 to this issue.

Note: The NTLM authentication helper is not enabled by default in Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 3. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 is not vulnerable to this
issue as it shipped with a version of Squid which did not contain the
helper.

Users of Squid should update to this errata package which contains a
backported patch that is not vulnerable to this issue.
