    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.
