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


A vulnerability has been found and corrected in squid :

The htcpHandleTstRequest function in htcp.c in Squid 2.x and 3.0 through 3.0.STABLE23 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via crafted packets to the HTCP port, which triggers a NULL pointer dereference (CVE-2010-0639).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
