Fedora Core 2 2004-330: squid

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the squid package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2004-330 (squid).

Squid is a high-performance proxy caching server for Web clients,
supporting FTP, gopher, and HTTP data objects. Unlike traditional
caching software, Squid handles all requests in a single,
non-blocking, I/O-driven process. Squid keeps meta data and especially
hot objects cached in RAM, caches DNS lookups, supports non-blocking
DNS lookups, and implements negative caching of failed requests.

Squid consists of a main server program squid, a Domain Name System
lookup program (dnsserver), a program for retrieving FTP data
(ftpget), and some management and client tools.


This update fixes a potential DoS against squid that was reported by
Secunia. See
http://secunia.com/advisories/12508/
for details.

- 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
