Package        : squid
Vulnerability  : mising input sanitising
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0446

Upstream developers have discovered several problems in squid, the
Internet object cache, the popular WWW proxy cache.  A remote attacker
can cause squid to crash via certain DNS responses.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.4.6-2woody7.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.5.8-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your squid package.
