Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 2
Name : squid
Version : 2.5.STABLE5
Release : 4.fc2
Summary : The Squid proxy caching server.
Description :
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
