Fedora Core 2 : squid-2.5.STABLE5-4.fc2 (2004-330)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes a potential DoS against squid that was reported by
Secunia. See http://secunia.com/advisories/12508/ for details.

- Fri Oct 1 2004 Jay Fenlason <fenlason at redhat.com>

- Modify the entry for /etc/squid.conf in this spec file
to set the permissions to 640 owned by root:squid.
This will protect passwords stored in the file from
prying eyes, and close #125007

- Include the -proxy-abuse patch, which closes #133970

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
