    Package        : squid
    Problem type   : remote DoS
    Debian-specific: no
    Vladimir Ivaschenko found a problem in squid (a popular proxy cache).
    He discovered that there was a flaw in the code to handle FTP PUT
    commands: when a mkdir-only request was done squid would detect
    an internal error and exit. Since squid is configured to restart
    itself on problems this is not a big problem.
    This has been fixed in version 2.2.5-3.2. This problem is logged
    as bug 233 in the squid bugtracker and will also be fixed in
    future squid releases.
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
