GLSA-201409-07 : c-icap: Denial of Service
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 77775
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201409-07 (c-icap: Denial of Service)
c-icap contains a flaw in the parse_request() function of request.c that may allow a remote denial of service. The issue is triggered when the buffer fails to contain a ‘ ‘ or ‘?’ symbol, which will cause the end pointer to increase and surpass allocated memory. With a specially crafted request (e.g. via the OPTIONS method), a remote attacker can cause a loss of availability for the program.
A remote attacker may cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll c-icap users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-proxy/c-icap-0.2.6'
