|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: Squid: Denial of Service (GLSA 200801-05)
Date: January 09, 2008
A Denial of Service vulnerability has been reported in Squid.
Squid is a multi-protocol proxy server.
Vulnerable: < 2.6.17
Unaffected: >= 2.6.17
Architectures: All supported architectures
The Wikimedia Foundation reported a memory leak vulnerability when
performing cache updates.
A remote attacker could perform numerous specially crafted requests to
the vulnerable server, resulting in a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Squid users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-proxy/squid-2.6.17"
