__________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 Due to incorrect input handling Squid cachemgr.cgi tool is
 vulnerable to multiple cross-site scripting attacks.

__________________________________________________________________

Severity:

 This allows a malicious server to embed URLs in its content such
 that user credentials and other information can be extracted from
 a client or administrator with access to the Squid cachemgr.cgi
 tool URL.

__________________________________________________________________

Updated Packages:

 This bug is fixed by Squid version 4.8.

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

Squid 3.x:
 <http://www.squid-cache.org/Versions/v3/3.5/changesets/squid-3.5-5730c2b5cb56e7639dc423dd62651c8736a54e35.patch>

Squid 4:
 <http://www.squid-cache.org/Versions/v4/changesets/squid-4-be1dc8614e7514103ba84d4067ed6fd15ab8f82e.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:

 Squid proxy is not vulnerable. The problem is isolated to the
 manager CGI interface tool.

 cachemgr.cgi tool displays its version number in the HTML page
 footer:

  All 2.x versions up to and including 2.7.STABLE9 are vulnerable.

  All 3.x versions up to and including 3.5.28 are vulnerable.

  All 4.x versions up to and including 4.7 are vulnerable.

  If your cachemgr.cgi does not display a version it is likely
  to be one of the older vulnerable versions.

__________________________________________________________________

Workarounds:

Either;

 Remove use of the cachemgr.cgi tool. It is only necessary for
 older proxy management. Modern Squid proxies management reports
 can be accessed directly.

Or,

 Add CORS protection to the web server running the CGI tool such
 that remote requests to the cachemgr.cgi tool cannot use
 query-string parameters.
