New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the squid packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Squid 3.x before 3.5.15 and 4.x before 4.0.7 does not properly append data to String objects, which allows remote servers to cause a denial of service (assertion failure and daemon exit) via a long string, as demonstrated by a crafted HTTP Vary header.(CVE-2016-2569)

- The Edge Side Includes (ESI) parser in Squid 3.x before 3.5.15 and 4.x before 4.0.7 does not check buffer limits during XML parsing, which allows remote HTTP servers to cause a denial of service (assertion failure and daemon exit) via a crafted XML document, related to esi/CustomParser.cc and esi/CustomParser.h.(CVE-2016-2570)

- http.cc in Squid 3.x before 3.5.15 and 4.x before 4.0.7 proceeds with the storage of certain data after a response-parsing failure, which allows remote HTTP servers to cause a denial of service (assertion failure and daemon exit) via a malformed response.(CVE-2016-2571)

- http.cc in Squid 4.x before 4.0.7 relies on the HTTP status code after a response-parsing failure, which allows remote HTTP servers to cause a denial of service (assertion failure and daemon exit) via a malformed response.(CVE-2016-2572)

- Squid 3.x before 3.5.16 and 4.x before 4.0.8 improperly perform bounds checking, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted HTTP response, related to Vary headers.(CVE-2016-3948)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected squid packages.
