Description

The Squid proxy server is vulnerable to a remote buffer overflow in the NTLM authentication helper. Squid supports client NTLM authentication. If the client sends an overly long password or domain name, a buffer is overflowed on the server. This may result in the execution of arbitrary code on the Squid proxy server.
