Mandrake It is possible for a remote attacker to create URLs that would not be properly tested against squid's ACLs, and thus be automatically allowed.

Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory

 Package name:           squid
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2004:025
 Date:                   March 30th, 2004

 Affected versions:	 9.1, 9.2, 10.0, Corporate Server 2.1,
			 Multi Network Firewall 8.2

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability was discovered in squid version 2.5.STABLE4 and
 earlier with the processing of %-encoded characters in a URL.  If a
 squid configuration uses ACLs (Access Control Lists), it is possible
 for a remote attacker to create URLs that would not be properly tested
 against squid's ACLs, potentially allowing clients to access URLs that
 would otherwise be disallowed.
 As well, the provided packages for Mandrake Linux 9.2 and 9.1 include a
 new Access Control type called "urllogin" which can be used to protect
 vulnerable Microsoft Internet Explorer clients from accessing URLs that
 contain login information.  While this Access Control type is available,
 it is not used in the default configuration.
 The updated packages are patched to protect against these
