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

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

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

Description :

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.

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 :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
