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

High Nessus Plugin ID 16377


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.


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.


Update the affected squid package.
