|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: SquidClamav: Denial of Service (GLSA 201209-08)
Date: September 24, 2012
A vulnerability in SquidClamav may result in Denial of Service.
SquidClamav is a HTTP anti-virus for Squid based on ClamAV and ICAP.
Vulnerable: < 6.8
Unaffected: >= 6.8
Architectures: All supported architectures
SquidClamav does not properly escape URLs before passing them to the
system command call.
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted URL to SquidClamav,
possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All SquidClamav users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-proxy/squidclamav-6.8"
