Test ID:
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-565-1 (squid)

The remote host is missing an update to squid
announced via advisory USN-565-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10
Ubuntu 7.04
Ubuntu 7.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

It was discovered that Squid did not always clean up cache memory
correctly. A remote attacker could manipulate cache update replies and
cause Squid to use all available memory, leading to a denial of service.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
squid 2.5.12-4ubuntu2.3

Ubuntu 6.10:
squid 2.6.1-3ubuntu1.5

Ubuntu 7.04:
squid 2.6.5-4ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 7.10:
squid 2.6.14-1ubuntu2.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
