========================================================================= ERIDANI LINUX - SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT ========================================================================= Package: squid Summary: Vulnerabilities in DNS, FTP, MSNT auth and gopher handling Date: 2002-07-04 ID: ERISA-2002:027 ========================================================================= Problem description: Versions of squid prior to 2.4.STABLE6 contain a problem in the code used to handle compressed DNS replies, in that a malicious DNS server could cause Squid to crash. The MSNT auth helper (msnt_auth) contains several buffer overflow conditions when configured to use denyusers or allowusers access control files. Squid's gopher client was also found to contain several buffer overflow conditions. This made it (in theory at least) possible for a malicious gopher server to cause Squid to crash. The FTP data channel handling was found to contain a problem, possibly allowing abuse of the FTP proxy to bypass firewall rules or inject false FTP replies. Several potential buffer overflowconditions were found in the code which handled FTP directories, potentially allowing an untrusted FTP server to crash Squid. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Updated packages: 1fda002f0f265560660a520c067e0295 squid-2.4.STABLE6-3.src.rpm 0dcdfbcb82885ab3ec82be33e91fc648 squid-2.4.STABLE6-3.i386.rpm ------------------------------------------------------------------------- References: ========================================================================= Packages available from or by HTTP from Packages are signed with our GNU GPG key, also on our FTP site.
