Summary:RedHat Linux 6.0 installs by default a squid cache manager cgi script with; no restricted access permissions. This script could be used to perform a port scan from the cgi-host machine.
Description:Summary:
RedHat Linux 6.0 installs by default a squid cache manager cgi script with
no restricted access permissions. This script could be used to perform a port scan from the cgi-host machine.

Solution:
If you are not using the box as a Squid www proxy/cache server then
uninstall the package by executing:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/squid stop, rpm -e squid

If you want to continue using the Squid proxy server software, make the
following actions to tighten security access to the manager interface:

mkdir /home/httpd/protected-cgi-bin

mv /home/httpd/cgi-bin/cachemgr.cgi /home/httpd/protected-cgi-bin/

And add the following directives to /etc/httpd/conf/access.conf and
srm.conf:

--- start access.conf segment ---

# Protected cgi-bin directory for programs that

# should not have public access

order deny, allow

deny from all

allow from localhost

#allow from .your_domain.com

AllowOverride None

Options ExecCGI

--- end access.conf segment ---

--- start srm.conf segment ---

ScriptAlias /protected-cgi-bin/ /home/httpd/protected-cgi-bin/

--- end srm.conf segment ---
