    Package        : squid
    Vulnerability  : IP spoofing
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-1519
    Debian Bug     : 309504
    The upstream developers have discovered a bug in the DNS lookup code
    of Squid, the popular WWW proxy cache.  When the DNS client UDP port
    (assigned by the operating system at startup) is unfiltered and the
    network is not protected from IP spoofing, malicious users can spoof
    DNS lookups which could result in users being redirected to arbitrary
    web sites.
    For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.4.6-2woody9.
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has already been
    fixed in version squid-2.5.9-9.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has already been
    fixed in version squid-2.5.9-9.
    We recommend that you upgrade your squid package.
