Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2005:201

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2005:201.

Squid is a full-featured Web proxy cache.

A bug was found in the way Squid handles fully qualified domain name (FQDN)
lookups. A malicious DNS server could crash Squid by sending a carefully
crafted DNS response to an FQDN lookup. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project ( has assigned the name CVE-2005-0446 to
this issue.

This erratum also includes two minor patches to the LDAP helpers. One
corrects a slight malformation in ldap search requests (although all
known LDAP servers accept the requests). The other adds documentation
for the -v option to the ldap helpers.

Users of Squid should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
backported patch, and is not vulnerable to this issue.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
