USN84-1 : squid vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
squid vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- squid
- squid-cgi
- squid-common
- squidclient


Description :

When parsing the configuration file, squid interpreted empty Access
Control Lists (ACLs) without defined authentication schemes in a
non-obvious way. This could permit remote attackers to bypass intended
ACLs. (CVE-2005-0194)

A remote Denial of Service vulnerability was discovered in the domain
name resolution code. A faulty or malicious DNS server could stop the
Squid server immediately by sending a malformed IP address.
(CVE-2005-0446)

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- squid-2.5.5-6ubuntu0.5 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- squid-cgi-2.5.5-6ubuntu0.5 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- squid-common-2.5.5-6ubuntu0.5 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- squidclient-2.5.5-6ubuntu0.5 (Ubuntu 4.10)
