Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.70100
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:1293
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2011:1293.

Squid is a high-performance proxy caching server for web clients,
supporting FTP, Gopher, and HTTP data objects.

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way Squid parsed replies from
remote Gopher servers. A remote user allowed to send Gopher requests to a
Squid proxy could possibly use this flaw to cause the squid child process
to crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the squid user,
by making Squid perform a request to an attacker-controlled Gopher server.
(CVE-2011-3205)

Users of squid should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
backported patch to correct this issue. After installing this update, the
squid service will be restarted automatically.

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
