The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in squid :
The idnsGrokReply function in Squid before 3.1.16 does not properly
free memory, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (daemon abort) via a DNS reply containing a CNAME record that
references another CNAME record that contains an empty A record
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
Update the affected squid and / or squid-cachemgr packages.
