Debian Security Advisory DSA-077-1                   security@debian.org

Package        : squid
Problem type   : remote DoS
Debian-specific: no

Vladimir Ivaschenko found a problem in squid (a popular proxy cache).
He discovered that there was a flaw in the code to handle FTP PUT
commands: when a mkdir-only request was done squid would detect
an internal error and exit. Since squid is configured to restart
itself on problems this is not a big problem.

This has been fixed in version 2.2.5-3.2. This problem is logged
as bug 233 in the squid bugtracker and will also be fixed in
future squid releases.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.


Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato
---------------------------------

  Potato was released for alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and sparc.
