Ubuntu 4.10 : squid vulnerabilities (USN-19-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2004-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

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

Description :

Recently, two Denial of Service vulnerabilities have been discovered
in squid, a WWW proxy cache. Insufficient input validation in the NTLM
authentication handler allowed a remote attacker to crash the service
by sending a specially crafted NTLMSSP packet. Likewise, due to an
insufficient validation of ASN.1 headers, a remote attacker could
restart the server (causing all open connections to be dropped) by
sending certain SNMP packets with negative length fields.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0

Family: Ubuntu Local Security Checks

Nessus Plugin ID: 20602 ()
