Description Mark J. Cox 2004-06-09 03:34:34 EDT
A buffer overflow was found in within the NTLM authentication helper
routine.  If Squid is configured to use the NTLM authentication
helper, a remote attacker could potentially execute arbitrary code by
sending an overly long password.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0541 to this issue.

Note: The NTLM authentication helper is not enabled by default in
Fedora Core. 

Note; This is a stack buffer overflow and exec-shield will help
mitigate the risk of this being exploited in Fedora Core.
