Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51864
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2005:201
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

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 (cve.mitre.org) 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.

Solution:
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
