Description

It was discovered that Squid incorrectly handled certain auth headers. A remote attacker could exploit this with a specially crafted auth header and cause Squid to go into an infinite loop, resulting in a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.10, 9.04 and 9.10. (CVE-2009-2855)

It was discovered that Squid incorrectly handled certain DNS packets. A remote attacker could exploit this with a specially crafted DNS packet and cause Squid to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2010-0308).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
