Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 3 2005-276: 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-2005-276 (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.

Note that squid-2.5.STABLE7 and later do not use /etc/squid/errors for
error messages. If you do not want to use the default English error
messages, you must set the error_directory in your
/etc/squid/squid.conf to the appropriate subdirectory of
/usr/share/squid/errors

- Add more upstream patches.
- add the -libbind patch, to avoid picking up a new dependency on libbind.
- Remove references to /etc/squid/errors from this spec, since squid
now uses {_datadir}/squid/errors/English/ by default (overridable in
/etc/squid/squid.conf, as always)
- mark {_datadir}/squid/errors as config(noreplace) so custom error messages
won't get stomped on.

* Wed Mar 16 2005 Jay Fenlason 7:2.5.STABLE9-1.FC3.3

- Actually apply the -date patch.

* Wed Mar 16 2005 Jay Fenlason 7:2.5.STABLE9-1.FC3.2

- New upstream version, with 14 patches. Includes fix for
bz#150234 cookie leak in squid
