USN84-1 : squid vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
squid vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- squid
- squid-cgi
- squid-common
- squidclient

Description :

When parsing the configuration file, squid interpreted empty Access
Control Lists (ACLs) without defined authentication schemes in a
non-obvious way. This could allow remote attackers to bypass intended
ACLs. (CVE-2005-0194)

A remote Denial of Service vulnerability was discovered in the domain
name resolution code. A faulty or malicious DNS server could stop the
Squid server immediately by sending a malformed IP address.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- squid-2.5.5-6ubuntu0.5 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- squid-cgi-2.5.5-6ubuntu0.5 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- squid-common-2.5.5-6ubuntu0.5 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- squidclient-2.5.5-6ubuntu0.5 (Ubuntu 4.10)

Threat Level: High
