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

High Nessus Plugin ID 15430


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


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> 7:2.5.STABLE3-4.fc2.1

- 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.


Update the affected squid and / or squid-debuginfo packages.
