Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.56379
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2006:0045
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2006:0045.

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.

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
