Issue date: 2006-03-15
Updated on: 2006-03-15
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
CVE Names: CVE-2005-2917
- ---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated squid packages that fix a security vulnerability as well as
several bugs are now available.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, 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 high-performance proxy caching server for Web clients,
supporting FTP, gopher, and HTTP data objects.

A denial of service flaw was found in the way squid processes certain NTLM
authentication requests. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted
NTLM authentication request which would cause the Squid server to crash.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name
CVE-2005-2917 to this issue.

Several bugs have also been addressed in this update:

* An error introduced in 2.5.STABLE3-6.3E.14 where Squid can crash if a
user visits a site which has a long DNS record.

* Some authentication helpers were missing needed setuid rights.

* Squid couldn't handle a reply from a HTTP server when the reply began
with the new-line character or wasn't HTTP/1.0 or HTTP/1.1 compliant.

* User-defined error pages were not kept when the squid package was upgraded.

All users of squid should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to resolve these issues.
