Mandrake: Updated squid packages fix Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Joseph Shakespeare   
Mandrake "infamous41md" discovered two vulnerabilities in the squid proxy cache server. The first is a buffer overflow in the Gopher response parser which leads to memory corruption and would usually crash squid (CAN-2005-0094). The second is an integer overflow in the receiver of WCCP (Web Cache Communication Protocol) messages. An attacker could send a specially crafted UDP datagram that would cause squid to crash (CAN-2005-0095).

 Problem Description:

 "infamous41md" discovered two vulnerabilities in the squid proxy
 cache server.  The first is a buffer overflow in the Gopher response
 parser which leads to memory corruption and would usually crash squid
 (CAN-2005-0094).  The second is an integer overflow in the receiver of
 WCCP (Web Cache Communication Protocol) messages.  An attacker could
 send a specially crafted UDP datagram that would cause squid to crash
 (CAN-2005-0095).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to prevent these problems.
