CVE-2011-1499 CVE-2011-1843 tinyproxy: multiple flaws corrected in version 1.8.3
Last modified: 2015-08-22 11:07:32 EDT
It was reported  that tinyproxy prior to version 1.8.3, when configured to allow a network range (i.e. "Allow 192.168.0.0/24" versus the default "Allow 127.0.0.1"), would allow any connections from any IP address, turning it into an open proxy. If tinyproxy were configured with one or more Allow statements that use an IP range, this would occur.
This has been fixed upstream  and affects the versions of tinyproxy as provided by Fedora and EPEL.
This was assigned the name CVE-2011-1499.
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2011-1843 to
the following vulnerability:
Integer overflow in conf.c in Tinyproxy before 1.8.3 might allow
remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions in
opportunistic circumstances via a TCP connection, related to improper
handling of invalid port numbers.
The above is a related but slightly different issue (note the same bug, but different commits).
