    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2019-18676
__________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 Due to improper input validation Squid is vulnerable to security
 bypass attacks. Attacker can gain access to restricted HTTP
 servers.

 Due to incorrect input validation Squid is vulnerable to a buffer
 overflow which can result in Denial of Service to all clients
 using the proxy.

__________________________________________________________________

Severity:

 Any remote client may access resources which should be restricted
 and not available to them. Such as those protected behind client
 IP ACLs. Attacker could also gain access to manager services when
 Via header is turned off.

 Any remote client can perform a Denial of Service on all other
 clients using the proxy.

__________________________________________________________________

Updated Packages:

 These bugs are fixed by Squid version 4.9.

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

Squid 4:
 <http://www.squid-cache.org/Versions/v4/changesets/squid-4-fbbdf75efd7a5cc244b4886a9d42ea458c5a3a73.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:

Use the command 'squid -v' to view version and build details of
your proxy;

 All Squid 2.x have not been checked.

 All Squid-3.x up to and including 3.5.28 are vulnerable.

 All Squid-4.x up to and including 4.8 are vulnerable.

__________________________________________________________________

Workaround:

 Access to manager services can be prevented by enabling the Via
 header:
   via on

 There are no reliable workarounds to prevent access to restricted
 upstream servers.

 There are no workarounds for the Denial of Service issue.
