Squid is a full-featured Web Proxy Cache designed to run on Unix
systems. It supports proxying and caching of HTTP, FTP, and other URLs,
as well as SSL support, cache hierarchies, transparent caching, access
control lists and many other features.
Squid 2.5.x versions contain a bug in the functions ntlm_fetch_string()
and ntlm_get_string() which lack checking the int32_t offset "o" for
negative values.
<impact type="normal">
A remote attacker could cause a denial of service situation by sending
certain malformed NTLMSSP packets if NTLM authentication is enabled.
Disable NTLM authentication by removing any "auth_param ntlm program
..." directives from squid.conf or use ntlm_auth from Samba-3.x.
All Squid users should upgrade to the latest stable version:
# emerge sync
# emerge -pv &quot;&gt;=net-www/squid-2.5.6-r2&quot;
# emerge &quot;&gt;=net-www/squid-2.5.6-r2&quot;</code>
