MDKSA-2005:034: squid Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the squid package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:034 (squid).

More vulnerabilities were discovered in the squid server:

The LDAP handling of search filters was inadequate which could be abused to
allow logins using severial variants of a single login name, possibly bypassing
explicit access controls (CVE-2005-0173).

Minor problems in the HTTP header parsing code that could be used for cache
poisoning (CVE-2005-0174 and CVE-2005-0175).

A buffer overflow in the WCCP handling code allowed remote attackers to cause a
Denial of Service and could potentially allow for the execution of arbitrary
code by using a long WCCP packet.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent these problems.
