FreeBSD : squid -- no sanity check of usernames in squid_ldap_auth (7a921e9e-68b1-11d9-9e1e-c296ac722cb3)

Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

The LDAP authentication helper did not strip leading or trailing
spaces from the login name. According to the squid patches page :

LDAP is very forgiving about spaces in search filters and this could
be abused to log in using several variants of the login name, possibly
bypassing explicit access controls or confusing accounting.

Workaround: Block logins with spaces

acl login_with_spaces proxy_auth_regex [:space:] http_access deny
