                     in HTTP Message processing.

Problem Description:

  Due to incorrect pointer handling Squid is vulnerable to denial
  of service attack when processing ESI responses or downloading
  intermediate CA certificates.

__________________________________________________________________

Severity:

  This problem allows a remote client delivering certain HTTP
  requests in conjunction with certain trusted server responses to
  trigger a denial of service for all clients accessing the Squid
  service.

__________________________________________________________________

Updated Packages:

  This bug is fixed by Squid version 4.0.23.

  In addition, patches addressing this problem for the stable
  releases can be found in our patch archives:

Squid 3.5:
  <http://www.squid-cache.org/Versions/v3/3.5/changesets/SQUID-2018_2.patch>

Squid 4:
  <http://www.squid-cache.org/Versions/v4/changesets/SQUID-2018_2.patch>

  If you are using a prepackaged version of Squid then please refer
  to the package vendor for availability information on updated
  packages.

__________________________________________________________________

Determining if your version is vulnerable:

  All Squid configured with "log_uses_indirect_client off" are not
  vulnerable.

  All Squid-3.0 versions built with --enable-esi and being used for
  reverse-proxy with squid.conf containing
  "log_uses_indirect_client on" are vulnerable.

  All Squid-3.1 and later versions up to and including
  Squid-3.5.27 being used for reverse-proxy with squid.conf
  containing "log_uses_indirect_client on" are vulnerable.

  All Squid-4 up to and including Squid-4.0.22 being used for
  reverse-proxy with squid.conf containing
  "log_uses_indirect_client on" are vulnerable.

  All unpatched Squid-4 up to and including Squid-4.0.22 being
  used for TLS/HTTPS intercept proxy with squid.conf containing
  "log_uses_indirect_client on" are vulnerable.

__________________________________________________________________

Workarounds:

  Configure "log_uses_indirect_client off" in squid.conf
