This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team

3. Problem description:

Squid is a full-featured Web proxy cache.  
  
A bug was found in the way Squid handles FQDN lookups.  It was possible  
to crash the Squid server by sending a carefully crafted DNS response to  
an FQDN lookup.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project  
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0446 to this issue.  
  
Users of squid should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a  
backported patch, and is not vulnerable to this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:

    up2date

For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the
following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
guide specific to your system:

    http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/
