Fedora Core 1 : squid-2.5.STABLE3-1.fc1 (2004-104)

High Nessus Plugin ID 13687


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


- Tue Mar 09 2004 Jay Fenlason <fenlason at redhat.com> 7:2.5.STABLE3-1.fc1

- Backport security fix for %00 hole. See CVE-2004-0189:
The '%xx' URL decoding function in Squid 2.5STABLE4 and earlier allows remote attackers to bypass url_regex ACLs via a URL with a NULL ('%00') character, which causes Squid to use only a portion of the requested URL when comparing it against the access control lists.

- Backport security fix that adds urllogin acl type that can be used to protect vulnerable Microsoft Internet Explorer clients.

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


Update the affected squid and / or squid-debuginfo packages.
