______________________________________________________________________________

1) problem description, brief discussion

    Squid is a feature-rich web-proxy with support for various web-related
    protocols.
    The last two squid updates from February the 1st and 10th fix several
    vulnerabilities. The impact of them range from remote denial-of-service
    over cache poisoning to possible remote command execution.
    Due to the hugh amount of bugs the vulnerabilities are just summarized
    here.
    
        CAN-2005-0094
                A buffer overflow in the Gopher responses parser leads
                to memory corruption and usually crash squid.

        CAN-2005-0095
                An integer overflow in the receiver of WCCP (Web Cache
                Communication Protocol) messages can be exploited remotely
                by sending a specially crafted UDP datagram to crash squid.

        CAN-2005-0096
                A memory leak in the NTLM fakeauth_auth helper for
                Squid 2.5.STABLE7 and earlier allows remote attackers
                to cause a denial-of-service due to uncontrolled memory
                consumption.

        CAN-2005-0097 
                The NTLM component in Squid 2.5.STABLE7 and earlier allows
                remote attackers to cause a crash od squid by sending a
                malformed NTLM message. 

        CAN-2005-0173
                LDAP handles search filters very laxly. This behaviour can
                be abused to log in using several variants of a login name,
                possibly bypassing explicit access controls or confusing
                accounting.
        
        CAN-2005-0175 and CAN-2005-0174
                Minor problems in the HTTP header parsing code that
                can be used for cache poisoning.
        
        CAN-2005-0211
                A buffer overflow in the WCCP handling code in Squid 2.5
                before 2.5.STABLE7 allows remote attackers to cause a
                denial-of-service and possibly execute arbitrary code
                by using a long WCCP packet.
                
        CAN-2005-0241
                The httpProcessReplyHeader function in Squid 2.5-STABLE7
                and earlier does not properly set the debug context when
                it is handling "oversized" HTTP reply headers. The impact
                is unknown.

        
2) solution/workaround

    There is no workaround known.

    
3) special instructions and notes

    Please make sure squid is restarted after the update.
    Execute 'rcsquid restart' as user root.
    

4) package location and checksums

    Download the update package for your distribution and verify its
    integrity by the methods listed in section 3) of this announcement.
    Then, install the package using the command "rpm -Fhv file.rpm" to apply
    the update.
    Our maintenance customers are being notified individually. The packages
    are being offered for installation from the maintenance web.

6) standard appendix: authenticity verification, additional information

  - Package authenticity verification:

    SUSE update packages are available on many mirror ftp servers all over
    the world. While this service is being considered valuable and important
    to the free and open source software community, many users wish to be
    sure about the origin of the package and its content before installing
    the package. There are two verification methods that can be used
    independently from each other to prove the authenticity of a downloaded
    file or rpm package:
    1) md5sums as provided in the (cryptographically signed) announcement.
    2) using the internal gpg signatures of the rpm package.

    1) execute the command
        md5sum <name-of-the-file.rpm>
       after you downloaded the file from a SUSE ftp server or its mirrors.
       Then, compare the resulting md5sum with the one that is listed in the
       announcement. Since the announcement containing the checksums is
       cryptographically signed (usually using the key security () suse de),
       the checksums show proof of the authenticity of the package.
       We recommend against subscribing to security lists that cause the
       e-mail message containing the announcement to be modified
       so that the signature does not match after transport through the mailing
       list software.
       Downsides: You must be able to verify the authenticity of the
       announcement in the first place. If RPM packages are being rebuilt
       and a new version of a package is published on the ftp server, all
       md5 sums for the files are useless.

    2) rpm package signatures provide an easy way to verify the authenticity
       of an rpm package. Use the command
        rpm -v --checksig <file.rpm>
       to verify the signature of the package, where <file.rpm> is the
       file name of the rpm package that you have downloaded. Of course,
       package authenticity verification can only target an uninstalled rpm
       package file.
       Prerequisites:
        a) gpg is installed
        b) The package is signed using a certain key. The public part of this
           key must be installed by the gpg program in the directory
           ~/.gnupg/ under the user's home directory who performs the
           signature verification (usually root). You can import the key
           that is used by SUSE in rpm packages for SUSE Linux by saving
           this announcement to a file ("announcement.txt") and
           running the command (do "su -" to be root):
            gpg --batch; gpg < announcement.txt | gpg --import
           SUSE Linux distributions version 7.1 and thereafter install the
           key "build () suse de" upon installation or upgrade, provided that
           the package gpg is installed. The file containing the public key
           is placed at the top-level directory of the first CD (pubring.gpg)
           and at ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/pubring.gpg-build.suse.de .
