Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : squid (MDKSA-2001:088)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 13901


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.


Vladimir Ivaschenko found a problem in the squid proxy server. Certain FTP requests could cause the squid daemon to abort, making it unavailable for a few seconds. If enough of these requests are sent in a short period of time, the squid daemon will not restart itself.


Update the affected squid package.
