The following packages are affected:


The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 2.5.5-6ubuntu0.10 (for Ubuntu 4.10), or 2.5.8-3ubuntu1.3 (for
Ubuntu 5.04). In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to
effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

A Denial of Service vulnerability was discovered in the handling of
aborted requests. A remote attacker could exploit this to crash Squid
by sending specially crafted requests. (CAN-2005-2794)

Alex Masterov discovered a Denial of Service vulnerability in the
sslConnectTimeout() function. By sending specially crafted SSL
requests, a remote attacker could exploit this to crash Squid.
