SuSE 11.2 Security Update : libproxy (SAT Patch Number 7092)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 64191


The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.


This update for libproxy fixes a heap-based buffer overflow that could have allowed remote servers to have an unspecified impact via a crafted Content-Length size in an HTTP response header for a proxy.pac file request. (CVE-2012-4505)

Additionally, it fixes parsing of the $no_proxy environment variable when it contains more than one URL separated by white-spaces.
