Ubuntu 4.10 : squid vulnerabilities (USN-84-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description :

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

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0

Family: Ubuntu Local Security Checks
