    PACKAGE : squid
    SUMMARY : Fixes for squid vulnerabilities
    DATE : 2004-11-03 10:48:00
    ID : CLA-2004:882
    RELEVANT
    RELEASES : 9, 10

    DESCRIPTION
     Squid[1] is a full-featured web proxy cache.
     
     This announcement fixes a denial of service vulnerability[2] in squid
     caused by a malformed NTLMSSP packet. This causes a negative value to
     be passed to memcpy on servers with NTLM authentication enabled,
     making squid abort and causing a denial of service condition.
     
     Fixes for two segmentation faults were also included: when using a
     blank user name in digest authentication[3] and after the message
     "Likely proxy abuse detected" has been printed to cache.log[4].
     
     Also fixes a denial of service situation[5] caused by certain
     malformed SNMP requests that when received by squid could restart it
     with a segmentation fault error.
     
     For Conectiva Linux 9, this announcement also fixes a buffer overflow
     vulnerability[6] in the ntlm_check_auth (NTLM authentication)
     function that allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via
     a long password.

    SOLUTION
     It is recommended that all squid users upgrade to the latest
     packages. This update will automatically restart the service if it is
     already running.
