Title:RedHat Update for squid RHSA-2011:1293-01
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.

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.

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

Please Install the Updated Packages.
