Subject: SQUID-2018:2 Denial of Service issue in HTTP Message processing

Notes for OSS-Security people:

* CVE has been requested through DWF, waiting on assignment.

* The patch for Squid-3.5 should also be applicable for most other
Squid-3.x releases.

* The patch for Squid-4 is provided for anyone having to use older betas
if any unrelated issues prevent an upgrade. This being a beta release
series at present the preferred option is upgrade.

Problem Description:

 Due to incorrect pointer handling Squid is vulnerable to denial
 of service attack when processing ESI responses or downloading
 intermediate CA certificates.

__________________________________________________________________

Severity:

 This problem allows a remote client delivering certain HTTP
 requests in conjunction with certain trusted server responses to
 trigger a denial of service for all clients accessing the Squid
 service.

__________________________________________________________________

Updated Packages:

 This bug is fixed by Squid version 4.0.23.

 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-2018_2.patch>

Squid 4:
 <http://www.squid-cache.org/Versions/v4/changesets/SQUID-2018_2.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 configured with "log_uses_indirect_client off" are not
 vulnerable.

 All Squid-3.0 versions built with --enable-esi and being used for
 reverse-proxy with squid.conf containing
 "log_uses_indirect_client on" are vulnerable.

 All Squid-3.1 and later versions up to and including
 Squid-3.5.27 being used for reverse-proxy with squid.conf
 containing "log_uses_indirect_client on" are vulnerable.

 All Squid-4 up to and including Squid-4.0.22 being used for
 reverse-proxy with squid.conf containing
 "log_uses_indirect_client on" are vulnerable.

 All unpatched Squid-4 up to and including Squid-4.0.22 being
 used for TLS/HTTPS intercept proxy with squid.conf containing
 "log_uses_indirect_client on" are vulnerable.

__________________________________________________________________

Workarounds:

 Configure "log_uses_indirect_client off" in squid.conf
