Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : squid (MDKSA-2005:181)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 20041


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Squid 2.5.9, while performing NTLM authentication, does not properly handle certain request sequences, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon restart).

The updated packages have been patched to address these issues.


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