Subject: Trustix Security Advisory - diffutils squid

Hi

Trustix today released updated versions of the diffutils and squid packages with patches fixing insecure tempfile handling leading to potential local root compromise.

All versions of Trustix Secure Linux are, as far as we know, vulnerable and should be updated.

MD5sums:
1.2:
1eb251233e977a05af437e9bff2724ac diffutils-2.7-18tr.i586.rpm
494d5139f8ae7dbfee65bc5d590de47e squid-2.3.STABLE4-3tr.i586.rpm

1.1:
843a08cbe2a02b7a3a9c5495c2a005bf diffutils-2.7-18tr.i586.rpm
ef5fa6722ffae66a9fd19f9e24c2c8e9 squid-2.3.STABLE4-3tr.i586.rpm

Get these updates at:
ftp://ftp.trustix.net/pub/Trustix/updates/
http://www.trustix.net/pub/Trustix/updates/

As always, any users of 1.0x should use the update for 1.1.

As of today, users of Trustix Secure Linux 1.2 can grab our new free-as-in-speech (GPL licenced) SoftWare UPdater (SWUP) to automatically update packages and install new packages.

Get SWUP at:
ftp://ftp.trustix.com/pub/Trustix/software/swup/

After proper configuration, you can use 'swup --update' to automatically download new updates.
