Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Updated squid package fixes security vulnerability
Advisory ID: RHSA-2004:462-01
Issue date: 2004-09-30
Updated on: 2004-09-30
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
CVE Names: CAN-2004-0832
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

An updated squid package that fixes a security vulnerability in the NTLM authentication helper is now available.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

Squid is a full-featured Web proxy cache.

An out of bounds memory read bug was found within the NTLM authentication helper routine. If Squid is configured to use the NTLM authentication helper, a remote attacker could send a carefully crafted NTLM authentication packet and cause Squid to crash. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0832 to this issue.

Note: The NTLM authentication helper is not enabled by default in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 is not vulnerable to this issue as it shipped with a version of Squid which did not contain the vulnerable helper.

Users of Squid should update to this erratum package, which contains a backported patch and is not vulnerable to this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. Use Red Hat Network to download and update your packages. To launch the Red Hat Update Agent, use the following command:

up2date

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/ for more info):

131750 - CAN-2004-0832 Certain malformed NTLMSSP packets could crash the NTLM helpers provided by Squid
