Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: squid
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:025
Date: March 30th, 2004

Affected versions: 9.1, 9.2, 10.0, Corporate Server 2.1,
Multi Network Firewall 8.2
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A vulnerability was discovered in squid version 2.5.STABLE4 and earlier with the processing of %-encoded characters in a URL. If a squid configuration uses ACLs (Access Control Lists), it is possible for a remote attacker to create URLs that would not be properly tested against squid's ACLs, potentially allowing clients to access URLs that would otherwise be disallowed.

As well, the provided packages for Mandrake Linux 9.2 and 9.1 include a new Access Control type called "urllogin" which can be used to protect vulnerable Microsoft Internet Explorer clients from accessing URLs that contain login information. While this Access Control type is available, it is not used in the default configuration.

The updated packages are patched to protect against these vulnerabilities.
