<title>Squid: Denial of Service</title>
Squid is affected by a Denial of Service vulnerability.
<product type="ebuild">squid</product>
<announced>March 31, 2007</announced>
<revised>March 31, 2007: 01</revised>
<package name="net-proxy/squid" auto="yes" arch="*">
<unaffected range="ge">2.6.12</unaffected>
<vulnerable range="lt">2.6.12</vulnerable>
Squid is a multi-protocol proxy server.
Squid incorrectly handles TRACE requests that contain a "Max-Forwards"
header field with value "0" in the clientProcessRequest() function.
<impact type="low">
A remote attacker can send specially crafted TRACE HTTP requests that
will terminate the child process. A quickly repeated attack will lead
to 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 &quot;&gt;=net-proxy/squid-2.6.12&quot;</code>
