Package : squid
Vulnerability : assertion error
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-2794

Certain aborted requests that trigger an assertion in squid, the

of service. This update also fixes a regression caused by DSA 751.

For the oldstable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.4.6-2woody10.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.5.9-10sarge1.

version 2.5.10-5.

We recommend that you upgrade your squid package.
