openSUSE Security Update : squidGuard (openSUSE-SU-2010:0460-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 48238


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


Two buffer overflows in squidGard were fixed :

CVE-2009-3700: Buffer overflow in sgLog.c in squidGuard 1.3 and 1.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application hang or loss of blocking functionality) via a long URL with many / (slash) characters, related to 'emergency mode.'

CVE-2009-3826: Multiple buffer overflows in squidGuard 1.4 allow remote attackers to bypass intended URL blocking via a long URL, related to (1) the relationship between a certain buffer size in squidGuard and a certain buffer size in Squid and (2) a redirect URL that contains information about the originally requested URL.

Also a logrotate mistake was fixed.


Update the affected squidGuard package.
