Description Tomas Hoger 2010-02-15 10:11:21 UTC
Squid upstream has released a security advisory for Squid, covering the DoS issue in the HTCP protocol handler:

  http://www.squid-cache.org/Advisories/SQUID-2010_2.txt

  Due to incorrect processing Squid is vulnerable to a denial of
  service attack when receiving specially crafted HTCP packets.

Specially-crafted HTCP packet may cause squid child process to crash (NULL pointer dereference), resulting in a temporary DoS as new child process is started by the squid parent process.

Comment 1 Tomas Hoger 2010-02-15 10:20:28 UTC
This issue did not affect squid packages as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4 and 5, as they do not have support for HTCP enabled (it is disabled by default in 2.5 and 2.6 versions and is not enabled explicitly in RHEL builds).  Newer squid versions enable HTCP by default.
