Subject: VideoCache 1.9.2 vccleaner root vulnerability

====[ SYNOPSIS ]=====================================================

VideoCache is a Squid URL rewriter plugin written in Python for 
bandwidth optimization while browsing video sharing websites.  Version 
1.9.2 allows a user with the privileges of the Squid proxy server to 
append semi-arbitrary data to arbitrary files with root privileges, upon 
the administrator's execution of the 'vccleaner' utility.


====[ DISCUSSION ]===================================================

VideoCache's 'vccleaner' utility is intended to be executed with root 
permissions periodically, to remove expired videos from the cache.
(The utility will refuse to execute without root permissions.)
Upon execution, it looks for old files under the cache directory
/var/spool/videocache (writable by the Squid proxy user) and deletes
them.  Each deleted filename is logged to vccleaner.log, located in 
/var/log/videocache (directory writable by the Squid proxy user).


====[ EXPLOIT ]======================================================
