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
