    Package        : squid
    Vulnerability  : insecure tempfile hole
    Debian-specific: no
    WireX discovered a potential temporary file race condition in the way
    that squid sends out email messages notifying the administrator about
    updating the program.  This could lead to arbitrary files to get
    overwritten.  However the code would only be executed if running a
    very bleeding edge release of squid, running a server whose time is
    set some number of months in the past and squid is crashing.  Read it
    as hardly to exploit.  This version also containes more upstream
    bugfixes wrt. dots in hostnames and unproper HTML quoting.
    We recommend you upgrade your squid package..
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
