Title:       EGI SVG 'ADVISORY' **UPDATE** [TLP:WHITE] HIGH risk - Squid Vulnerability  [EGI-SVG-2021-17247]

Date:        2021-05-12
Updated:     2021-06-03


Update 2021-06-03
=================

EGI UMD 4 has been updated with frontier-squid-4.15-1.2 that fixes the vulnerability.


Affected software and risk
==========================

HIGH risk vulnerability concerning Squid

Package : Squid, including Frontier Squid [R 3] before version 4.15

The Squid project has publicly announced [R 1] new vulnerabilities, one of which is deemed HIGH risk, viz. CVE-2020-25097 [R 2], because it may allow services to be exposed that are not directly accessible from the client host. The other ones only concern potential denial of service and hence are deemed low risk.


Actions required/recommended
============================

Sites are recommended to update relevant components or apply the mitigation detailed below as soon as possible.


Component installation information
==================================

The official repository for the distribution of grid middleware for EGI sites is 
repository.egi.eu which contains the EGI Unified Middleware Distribution (UMD).
 
Sites using frontier-squid from the EGI UMD 4 should see:

    http://repository.egi.eu/sw/production/umd/4/centos7/x86_64/updates/

The fixed version is frontier-squid-4.15-1.2.


Sites installing Squid from anywhere else should see information from their provider.

Fixed versions (squid-3.5.20-17.el7_9.6) are available for RHEL 7 [R 5], CentOS 7 [R 6], SL 7 [R 7].


Mitigation
==========

For sites that cannot upgrade in a timely manner, temporary workarounds for the
high-risk vulnerability are provided here.

If frontier-squid is used, update customize.sh with the following line and either reload or restart frontier-squid:

    setoption("uri_whitespace", "deny")



If a plain squid is used instead, set the "uri_whitespace" directive in squid.conf to either:

    uri_whitespace deny

or

    uri_whitespace encode

and restart the squid service.


Affected software details
=========================

All versions of squid and frontier-squid earlier than 4.15 are affected. 


Additional information
======================

Note that exposure of squid services should usually be limited by access control to addresses within a local area network.
