The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
'infamous41md' discovered two vulnerabilities in the squid proxy cache
server. The first is a buffer overflow in the Gopher response parser
which leads to memory corruption and would usually crash squid
(CVE-2005-0094). The second is an integer overflow in the receiver of
WCCP (Web Cache Communication Protocol) messages. An attacker could
send a specially crafted UDP datagram that would cause squid to crash
The updated packages have been patched to prevent these problems.
