Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:1130
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:1130.

Squid is a high-performance proxy caching server for Web clients,
supporting FTP, gopher, and HTTP data objects.

A flaw was found in the way squid stored HTTP headers for cached objects
in system memory. An attacker could cause squid to use additional memory,
and trigger high CPU usage when processing requests for certain cached
objects, possibly leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2007-6239)

Users of squid are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve 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
