    Package        : adzapper
    Vulnerability  : denial of service
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0046
    Debian Bug     : 350308
    
    Thomas Reifferscheid discovered that adzapper, a proxy advertisement
    zapper add-on, when installed as plugin in squid, the Internet object
    cache, can consume a lot of CPU resources and hence cause a denial of
    service on the proxy host.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain an adzapper package.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 20050316-1sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 20060115-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your adzapper package.

    dpkg -i file.deb
