Debian Security Advisory DSA-2571-1 firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Raphael Geissert November 04, 2012 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
Package : libproxy Vulnerability : buffer overflow Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2012-4505
The Red Hat Security Response Team discovered that libproxy, a library for automatic proxy configuration management, applied insufficient validation to the Content-Length header sent by a server providing a proxy.pac file. Such remote server could trigger an integer overflow and consequently overflow an in-memory buffer.
For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 0.3.1-2+squeeze1.
For the testing distribution (wheezy), and the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 0.3.1-5.1.
We recommend that you upgrade your libproxy packages.
