USN-5641-1: Squid vulnerabilities

26 September 2022

Several security issues were fixed in Squid.



  • squid - Web proxy cache server
  • squid3 - Web proxy cache server


Mikhail Evdokimov discovered that Squid incorrectly handled cache manager
ACLs. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to obtain sensitive
information. This issue only affected Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 22.04
LTS. (CVE-2022-41317)

It was discovered that Squid incorrectly handled SSPI and SMB
authentication. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause Squid to
crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly obtain sensitive
information. (CVE-2022-41318)

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 22.04
Ubuntu 20.04
Ubuntu 18.04

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
