SuSE Linux AG Tuesday announced it has detected five security
vulnerabilities in the version of the Squid Web cache software
included in its Linux distribution.
Squid is a high-performance proxy cache server software for Web
clients, supporting FTP, gopher and HTTP data objects. Unlike
traditional caching software, Squid handles all requests in a single,
nonblocking, I/O-driven process.
The severity of the errors in the package ranges from harmless to
critical, according to SuSE in Nürnberg, Germany. The company points
to vulnerabilities in gopher clients and the FTP directory parsing
code, which could "remotely execute code introduced by attackers."
"Every open source vendor with Squid software, which is the most
widely used cache proxy package, is affected," said Roman Drahtmüller,
director of SuSE's security team.
SuSE has released patches , which can be found, together with the
company's security announcement.
