Debian Security Advisory DSA 688-1                                        Martin Schulze
February 23rd, 2005           
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : squid
Vulnerability  : mising input sanitising
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0446

Upstream developers have discovered several problems in squid, the
Internet object cache, the popular WWW proxy cache.  A remote attacker
can cause squid to crash via certain DNS responses.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.4.6-2woody7.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.5.8-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your squid package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

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

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
