__________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 Due to incorrect message processing Squid configured with
 append_domain can inappropriately redirect traffic to origins it
 should not be delivered to.

__________________________________________________________________

Severity:

 This issue allows attackers to hide origin servers for phishing
 attacks or malware download URLs.

 This issue is restricted to proxies with append_domain
 configured. It is relatively easy for attackers to probe and
 determine whether a target network proxy has this directive
 along with its value.

__________________________________________________________________

Updated Packages:

 This bug is fixed by Squid version 4.9.

 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-3.5-e5f1813a674848dde570f7920873e1071f96e0b4.patch>

Squid 4:
 <http://www.squid-cache.org/Versions/v4/changesets/squid-4-36492033ea4097821a4f7ff3ddcb971fbd1e8ba0.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 without append_domain configured are not vulnerable.

 All Squid-2.x up to and including 2.7.STABLE9 with append_domain
 configured are vulnerable.

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

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


To determine whether append_domain is configured use the command:

 squid -k parse | grep append_domain

__________________________________________________________________

Workarounds:

 Remove append_domain configuration settings from squid.conf.

 The append_domain feature is redundant when /etc/resolv.conf
 is used to determine hostnames. However, please note that use
 of /etc/resolv.conf may require removal of dns_nameservers and
 other redundant DNS directives.
