Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory: squid update

Jul 26, 2001, 08:48 (0 Talkback[s])
Date: Wed, 25 Jul 2001 15:21:42 -0600
From: Linux Mandrake Security Team <security@linux-mandrake.com>
Subject: MDKSA-2001:066 - squid update

______________________________________________________________________

                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
______________________________________________________________________

Package name:           squid
Date:                   July 25th, 2001
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2001:066

Affected versions:      7.1, 7.2, 8.0, Corporate Server 1.0.1,
                        Single Network Firewall 7.2
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 The Squid proxy server has a serious security flaw in versions
 2.3.STABLE2 through 2.3.STABLE4.  This problem surfaces when Squid is
 used in httpd_accel mode.  If you configure httpaccelwith_proxy off
 then any request to Squid is allowed.  Malicious users may use your
 proxy to portscan remote systems, forge email, and other activities.

Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of
the downloaded package.  You can do this with the command:
  rpm --checksig package.rpm
You can get the GPG public key of the Mandrake Linux Security Team at
  http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/security/RPM-GPG-KEYS
If you use MandrakeUpdate, the verification of md5 checksum and GPG
signature is performed automatically for you.

To upgrade automatically, use MandrakeUpdate.

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one
of our FTP server mirrors and upgrade with "rpm -Fvh *.rpm".

You can download the updates directly from one of the mirror sites
listed at:

  http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ftp.php3.

Updated packages are available in the "updates/[ver]/RPMS/" directory.
For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM package for
Mandrake Linux 8.0, look for it in "updates/8.0/RPMS/".  Updated source
RPMs are available as well, but you generally do not need to download
them.

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to
update.
