Red Hat: Updated squid package fixes security vulnerability

Squid is a full-featured Web proxy cache. An out of bounds memory read bug was found within the NTLM authentication helper routine. If Squid is configured to use the NTLM authentication helper, a remote attacker could send a carefully crafted NTLM authentication packet and cause Squid to crash. Fixed packages are available from updates.redhat.com.

- ---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

An updated squid package that fixes a security vulnerability in the NTLM
authentication helper is now available.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

Squid is a full-featured Web proxy cache.

An out of bounds memory read bug was found within the NTLM authentication
helper routine.  If Squid is configured to use the NTLM authentication
helper, a remote attacker could send a carefully crafted NTLM
authentication packet and cause Squid to crash.  The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0832
to this issue.

Note: The NTLM authentication helper is not enabled by default in Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 3.  Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 is not vulnerable to this
issue as it shipped with a version of Squid which did not contain the
vulnerable helper. 

Users of Squid should update to this erratum package, which contains a
backported patch and is not vulnerable to this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:

    up2date

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/ for more info):

131750 - CAN-2004-0832 Certain malformed NTLMSSP packets could crash the NTLM helpers provided by Squid
