Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.60737
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2008:0214
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2008:0214.

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 manipulated HTTP headers for cached
objects stored in system memory. An attacker could use this flaw to cause a
squid child process to exit. This interrupted existing connections and made
proxy services unavailable. Note: the parent squid process started a new
child process, so this attack only resulted in a temporary denial of
service. (CVE-2008-1612)

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
