Title:RedHat Update for squid RHSA-2011:0545-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'squid'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The remote host is missing an update for the 'squid'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
Squid is a high-performance proxy caching server for web clients,
supporting FTP, Gopher, and HTTP data objects.

It was found that string comparison functions in Squid did not properly
handle the comparisons of NULL and empty strings. A remote, trusted web
client could use this flaw to cause the squid daemon to crash via a
specially-crafted request. (CVE-2010-3072)

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* A small memory leak in Squid caused multiple 'ctx: enter level' messages
to be logged to '/var/log/squid/cache.log'. This update resolves the memory
leak. (BZ#666533)

* This erratum upgrades Squid to upstream version 3.1.10. This upgraded
version supports the Google Instant service and introduces various code
improvements. (BZ#639365)

Users of squid should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these
issues. After installing this update, the squid service will be restarted

Affected Software/OS:
squid on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Please Install the Updated Packages.
