Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51113
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2004:242
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2004:242.

Squid is a full-featured Web proxy cache.

A buffer overflow was found within the NTLM authentication helper
routine. If Squid is configured to use the NTLM authentication helper,
a remote attacker could potentially execute arbitrary code by sending a
lengthy password. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0541 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 helper.

Users of Squid should update to this errata package which contains a
backported patch that is not vulnerable to this issue.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
