Title:Debian Security Advisory DSA 688-1 (squid)
The remote host is missing an update to squid
announced via advisory DSA 688-1.

Upstream developers have discovered several problems in squid, the
Internet object cache, the popular WWW proxy cache. A remote attacker
can cause squid to crash via certain DNS responses.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.4.6-2woody7.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.5.8-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your squid package.
