                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
______________________________________________________________________

Package name:           squid
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2002:027
Date:                   April 16th, 2002
Affected versions:      7.1, 7.2, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, Corporate Server 1.0.1,
                        Single Network Firewall 7.2
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:
 A security issue has recently been found and fixed in the Squid-2.X
 releases up to and including 2.4.STABLE4.

 Error and boundary conditions were not checked when handling compressed
 DNS answer messages in the internal DNS code (lib/rfc1035.c).  A 
 malicous DNS server could craft a DNS reply that causes Squid to exit
 with a SIGSEGV.

FTP mirrors can be obtained from:

Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of
the downloaded package.  You can do this with the command:
