openSUSE Security Update : privoxy (openSUSE-2015-115)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 81241


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


privoxy was updated to version 3.0.23 to fix three security issues.

These security issues were fixed :

- Fixed a DoS issue in case of client requests with incorrect chunk-encoded body. When compiled with assertions enabled (the default) they could previously cause Privoxy to abort() (CVE-2015-1380).

- Fixed multiple segmentation faults and memory leaks in the pcrs code. This fix also increases the chances that an invalid pcrs command is rejected as such (CVE-2015-1381).

- Client requests with body that can't be delivered no longer cause pipelined requests behind them to be rejected as invalid (CVE-2015-1382).


Update the affected privoxy packages.
