Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : squid (MDKSA-2005:034)

Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

More vulnerabilities were discovered in the squid server :

The LDAP handling of search filters was inadequate which could be
abused to allow logins using severial variants of a single login name,
possibly bypassing explicit access controls (CVE-2005-0173).

Minor problems in the HTTP header parsing code that could be used for
cache poisoning (CVE-2005-0174 and CVE-2005-0175).

A buffer overflow in the WCCP handling code allowed remote attackers
to cause a Denial of Service and could potentially allow for the
execution of arbitrary code by using a long WCCP packet.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent these problems.
