                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           squid
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2002:016-1
Date:                   February 26th, 2002
Original Advisory Date: February 21st, 2002
Affected versions:      7.1, 7.2, 8.0, Corporate Server 1.0.1,
                        Single Network Firewall 7.2
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 Three security issues were found in the 2.x versions of the Squid proxy
 server up to and including 2.4.STABLE3.  The first is a memory leak in
 the optional SNMP interface to Squid which could allow a malicious user
 who can send packets to the Squid SNMP port to possibly perform a
 Denial of Service attack on ther server if the SNMP interface is
 enabled.  The next is a buffer overflow in the implementation of ftp://
 URLs where allowed users could possibly perform a DoS on the server,
 and may be able to trigger remote execution of code (which the authors
 have not yet confirmed).  The final issue is with the HTCP interface
 which cannot be properly disabled from squid.conf; HTCP is enabled by
 default on Mandrake Linux systems.

Update:

 The squid updates for all versions other than Mandrake Linux were
 incorrectly built with LDAP authentication which introduced a
 dependency on OpenLDAP.  These new packages do not use LDAP
 authentication.  The Single Network Firewall 7.2 package previously
 released did not use LDAP authentication, however rebuilding the source
 RPM package required LDAP to be installed.  Single Network Firewall 7.2
 users do not need to upgrade to these packages to have a properly
 function squid.

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one 
of our FTP server mirrors and upgrade with "rpm -Fvh *.rpm".  A list of
FTP mirrors can be obtained from:

  http://www.mandrakesecure.net/en/ftp.php

Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of
the downloaded package.  You can do this with the command:
