Package        : squid
Problem-Type   : ACL bypass
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids        : CAN-2004-0189

A vulnerability was discovered in squid, an Internet object cache,
whereby access control lists based on URLs could be bypassed
(CAN-2004-0189).  Two other bugs were also fixed with patches
squid-2.4.STABLE7-url_escape.patch (a buffer overrun which does not
appear to be exploitable) and squid-2.4.STABLE7-url_port.patch (a
potential denial of service).

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.4.6-2woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.5.5-1.

We recommend that you update your squid package.
