The remote service is affected by a remote code execution
The remote server is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability
in the Squid Internet Object Cache server due to a failure to test the
length of the user-supplied LanMan hash value in the ntlm_check_auth()
function in libntlmssp.c. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can
exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to cause a stack-based
buffer overflow, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.
Note that Squid 2.5*-STABLE and 3.*-PRE are reportedly vulnerable.
