Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : squid (MDKSA-2005:195)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 20123


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


The rfc1738_do_escape function in ftp.c for Squid 2.5.STABLE11 and earlier allows remote FTP servers to cause a denial of service (segmentation fault) via certain 'odd' responses.

The updated packages have been patched to address these issues.


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