Debian Security Advisory DSA 809-3 [email protected] 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.
