    Squid Proxy Cache Security Update Advisory SQUID-2014:3
__________________________________________________________________

Advisory ID:            SQUID-2014:3
Date:                   September 15, 2014

    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-6270
__________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 Due to incorrect buffer management Squid can be caused by an
 attacker to write outside its allocated SNMP buffer.

__________________________________________________________________

Severity:

 The bug is important because it allows remote attackers to crash
 Squid, causing a disruption in service.  However, the bug is
 exploitable only if you have configured Squid to receive SNMP
 messages.

 Sites that do not use SNMP are not vulnerable.

__________________________________________________________________

Updated Packages:

 This bug is fixed by Squid version 3.4.8

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

 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 built with --disable-snmp are not vulnerable to the
 problem.

 All Squid operating with "snmp_port 0" in squid.conf are not
 vulnerable to the problem.

 All Squid-3.x operating with snmp_port omitted from squid.conf
 are not vulnerable to the problem.

 All Squid-2.x operating with snmp_port omitted from squid.conf
 are vulnerable to the problem.

 All unpatched Squid versions up to and including 3.4.7 with
 snmp_port configured to a non-0 value are vulnerable to the
 problem.

__________________________________________________________________

Workaround:

Either,

 Configure the firewall controlling access to Squid service such
 that only specific trusted sources can deliver SNMP packets to
 the Squid SNMP listening port.

Or,

 Disable SNMP. Which may be done in any of the following ways:

 * Build Squid with ./configure --disable-snmp

 * For Squid-2.x add the following directive to squid.conf file:
    snmp_port 0

 * For Squid-3.x remove from squid.conf (and include'd files) any of
   the following directives which are present:

     snmp_port
     snmp_access
     snmp_incoming_address
     snmp_outgoing_address
