Buffer overflows in Squid before 2.4.STABLE6 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code (1) via the MSNT auth helper (msnt_auth) when using denyusers or allowusers files, (2) via the gopher client, or (3) via the FTP server directory listing parser when HTML output is generated.

   Note that this report is for the "msntauth" module, which
   itself is out-of-date, but there is obviously a codebase relationship
   with what's included in the Squid distribution.
