Description

TITLE: Squid Two Vulnerabilities

SECUNIA ADVISORY ID: SA13825

VERIFY ADVISORY: http://secunia.com/advisories/13825/

CRITICAL: Moderately critical

IMPACT: DoS, System access

WHERE: >From remote

SOFTWARE: Squid 2.x http://secunia.com/product/310/

DESCRIPTION: Two vulnerabilities have been reported in Squid, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) or potentially compromise a vulnerable system.

1) An error in the handling of invalid field values in "WCCP_I_SEE_YOU" messages can be exploited to crash Squid by sending a specially crafted UDP datagram with a spoofed WCCP (Web Cache Communication Protocol) router's IP address.

Successful exploitation requires that WCCP is enabled (not default setting).

2) A boundary error in the "gopherToHTML()" function can be exploited via a malicious gopher server to cause a buffer overflow by responding with a specially crafted, overly long line.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.

SOLUTION: Apply patches for 2.5.STABLE7: http://www.squid-cache.org/Versions/v2/2.5/bugs/squid-2.5.STABLE7-gopher_html_parsing.patch http://www.squid-cache.org/Versions/v2/2.5/bugs/squid-2.5.STABLE7-wccp_denial_of_service.patch

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY: Reported by vendor.
