FreeBSD : Buffer overflow in Squid NTLM authentication helper (6f955451-ba54-11d8-b88c-000d610a3b12)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 36518


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


Remote exploitation of a buffer overflow vulnerability in the NTLM authentication helper routine of the Squid Web Proxy Cache could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. A remote attacker can compromise a target system if the Squid Proxy is configured to use the NTLM authentication helper. The attacker can send an overly long password to overflow the buffer and execute arbitrary code.


Update the affected package.
