Debian Security Advisory DSA 966-1                     security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                             Martin Schulze

Package        : adzapper
Vulnerability  : denial of service
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0046
Debian Bug     : 350308

Thomas Reifferscheid discovered that adzapper, a proxy advertisement
zapper add-on, when installed as plugin in squid, the Internet object
cache, can consume a lot of CPU resources and hence cause a denial of
service on the proxy host.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain an adzapper package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 20050316-1sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 20060115-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your adzapper 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.
