openSUSE Security Update : privoxy (openSUSE-2015-115)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 81241
SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
Descriptionprivoxy 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).
SolutionUpdate the affected privoxy packages.
