Debian Updated package.
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------
Debian Security Advisory DSA 809-2                                        Martin Schulze
September 30th, 2005          
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : squid
Vulnerability  : assertion error
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2794
Debian Bug     : 320035

Certain aborted requests that trigger an assertion in squid, the
popular WWW proxy cache, may allow remote attackers to cause a denial
of service.  This update also fixes a regression caused by DSA 751.

For the oldstable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.4.6-2woody10.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.5.9-10sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.5.10-5.

We recommend that you upgrade your squid package.

- --------------------

        will fetch the file for you
