Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated squid packages that fix a denial of service issue are now

Squid is a full-featured Web proxy cache.

to crash the Squid server by sending a carefully crafted DNS response to
an FQDN lookup. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project

Users of squid should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
backported patch, and is not vulnerable to this issue.
