Squid idnsALookup() buffer overflow
|squid-idnsalookup-bo (85564)||High Risk|
Squid is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the idnsALookup() function. By sending a specially-crafted HTTP request, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
Refer to SQUID-2013:2 for patch, upgrade or suggested workaround information. See References.
