Debian Security Advisory DSA-1646-1 security@debian.org

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : squid
Vulnerability : array bounds check
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-1612

A weakness has been discovered in squid, a caching proxy server. The
flaw was introduced upstream in response to CVE-2007-6239, and
announced by Debian in DSA-1482-1. The flaw involves an
over-aggressive bounds check on an array resize, and could be
exploited by an authorized client to induce a denial of service
condition against squid.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.6.5-6etch2.

We recommend that you upgrade your squid packages.


Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
