Hi, I've identified a couple of security flaws affecting the Varnish reverse proxy which may allow privilege escalation. These issues were reported by email to the vendor but he feels that it is a configurational issue rather than a design flaw. Whilst I can partially see his point in that the administrative interface can be disabled, I'm not convinced that making a C compiler available over a network interface without authentication is sound practice, especially when the resultant compiled code can be made to run as root rather trivially.
