Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.59098
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-414-1 (squid)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-414-1 (squid)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to squid
announced via advisory USN-414-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

Details follow:

David Duncan Ross Palmer and Henrik Nordstrom discovered that squid
incorrectly handled special characters in FTP URLs. Remote users with
access to squid could crash the server leading to a denial of service.
(CVE-2007-0247)

Erick Dantas Rotole and Henrik Nordstrom discovered that squid could end
up in an endless loop when exhausted of available external ACL helpers.
Remote users with access to squid could cause CPU starvation, possibly
leading to a denial of service. This does not affect a default Ubuntu
installation, since external ACL helpers must be configured and used.
(CVE-2007-0248)

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
squid 2.5.12-4ubuntu2.2

Ubuntu 6.10:
squid 2.6.1-3ubuntu1.2

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
