openSUSE Security Update : squidGuard (openSUSE-SU-2010:0460-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 75748
SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
DescriptionTwo 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.
SolutionUpdate the affected squidGuard package.
