Package name:      squid
Summary:           buffer overflow
Date:              2004-06-10
Affected versions: Trustix Secure Linux 2.0
                   Trustix Secure Linux 2.1

Package description:
  Squid is a high-performance proxy caching server for Web clients,
  supporting FTP, gopher, and HTTP data objects. Unlike traditional
  caching software, Squid handles all requests in a single,
  non-blocking, I/O-driven process. Squid keeps meta data and especially
  hot objects cached in RAM, caches DNS lookups, supports non-blocking
  DNS lookups, and implements negative caching of failed requests.

Problem description:
  Remote exploitation of a buffer overflow vulnerability in Squid Web
  Proxy Cache could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code.
  Squid Web Proxy Cache supports Basic, Digest and NTLM authentication.
  The vulnerability specifically exists within the NTLM authentication
  helper routine, ntlm_check_auth(), located in

  The function contains a buffer overflow vulnerability due to a lack of
  bounds checking on the values copied to the 'pass' variable. Both the
  'tmp.str' and 'tmp.l' variables used in the memcpy() call contain
  user-supplied data.

  We recommend that all systems with this package installed be upgraded.
  Please note that if you do not need the functionality provided by this
  package, you may want to remove it from your system.
