A squid security update has been released for Fedora Core 2

Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 2
Name : squid
Version : 2.5.STABLE9
Release : 1.FC2.2
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.

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


* Tue Mar 29 2005 Jay Fenlason lt;fenlason@redhat.comgt; 7:2.5.STABLE9-1.FC3.2

- more upstream patches
- include -libbind patch, to prevent squid from picking up a dependency
on libbind.
- remove references to /etc/squid/errors, since squid now uses
{_datadir}/squid/errors/English by default. (overridable in squid.conf)
- Mark {datadir}/squid/errors as config(noreplace) so custom error messages
won't get scribbled on.

* Wed Mar 16 2005 Jay Fenlason lt;fenlason@redhat.comgt; 7:2.5.STABLE9-1.FC3.1

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