Debian Security Advisory DSA 809-3                                        Martin Schulze
November 7th, 2005

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

Kosa Attila discovered that the security update DSA 809-2 contained a
regression in the packages for the old stable distribution (woody).
The orginal advisory text follows:

   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 2.4.6-2woody11.

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.
