1. Problem Description

         Vulnerability in Squid related to proxy authentication
         credentials may allow remote web sites to obtain the user's
         proxy login and password.

         FTP proxy in Squid does not compare the IP addresses of
         control and data connections with the FTP server, which
         allows remote attackers to bypass firewall rules or spoof FTP
         server responses.

         Buffer overflows in Squid allow remote attackers to cause a
         denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code
         (1) via the MSNT auth helper (msnt_auth) when using denyusers
         or allowusers files, (2) via the gopher client, or (3) via
         the FTP server directory listing parser when HTML output is
         generated.


2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

        System                          Binaries
