Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : squid (MDKSA-2002:027)

High Nessus Plugin ID 13934


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.


A security issue has recently been found and fixed in the Squid-2.X releases up to and including 2.4.STABLE4.

Error and boundary conditions were not checked when handling compressed DNS answer messages in the internal DNS code (lib/rfc1035.c). A malicous DNS server could craft a DNS reply that causes Squid to exit with a SIGSEGV.


Update the affected squid package.
