Package        : squidguard
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids        : CVE-2009-3700, CVE-2009-3826
Debian Bug     : 553319

It was discovered that in squidguard, a URL redirector/filter/ACL plugin
for squid, several problems in src/sgLog.c and src/sgDiv.c allow remote
users to either:

  * cause a denial of service, by requesting long URLs containing many
    slashes; this forces the daemon into emergency mode, where it does
    not process requests anymore.

  * bypass rules by requesting URLs whose length is close to predefined
    buffer limits, in this case 2048 for squidguard and 4096 or 8192 for
    squid (depending on its version).

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.2.0-8.4+lenny1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.2.0-9.

We recommend that you upgrade your squidguard package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
