Virtuozzo 6 : squid34 (VZLSA-2017-0183)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Virtuozzo host is missing a security update.

Description :

An update for squid34 is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security
impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each
vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

The squid34 packages provide version 3.4 of Squid, a high-performance
proxy caching server for web clients, supporting FTP, Gopher, and HTTP
data objects.

Security Fix(es) :

* It was found that squid did not properly remove connection specific
headers when answering conditional requests using a cached request. A
remote attacker could send a specially crafted request to an HTTP
server via the squid proxy and steal private data from other
connections. (CVE-2016-10002)

Note that Tenable Network Security has attempted to extract the
preceding description block directly from the corresponding Red Hat
security advisory. Virtuozzo provides no description for VZLSA
advisories. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format
it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
