The remote host is missing updates announced in
Squid is a high-performance proxy caching server for web clients,
supporting FTP, Gopher, and HTTP data objects.
A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way Squid parsed replies from
remote Gopher servers. A remote user allowed to send Gopher requests to a
Squid proxy could possibly use this flaw to cause the squid child process
to crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the squid user,
by making Squid perform a request to an attacker-controlled Gopher server.
Users of squid should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
backported patch to correct this issue. After installing this update, the
squid service will be restarted automatically.
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
