Subject: MDKSA-2001:003 – squid update


                Linux-Mandrake Security Update Advisory


Package name:           squid
Date:                   January 10th, 2001
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2001:003

Affected versions:      6.0, 6.1, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2

Problem Description:

WireX discovered a potential temporary file race condition in
the way that squid sends out email messages notifying the
administrator about updating the program. Usually this will only
happen if you are running a development version of squid or if the
clock on your system is incorrect. This problem has been corrected
in the latest stable and development versions of squid.


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 Linux-Mandrake 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 uprade with “rpm -Uvh
package_name”.

You can download the updates directly from:

ftp://ftp.linux.tucows.com/pub/distributions/Mandrake/Mandrake/updates

ftp://ftp.free.fr/pub/Distributions_Linux/Mandrake/updates

Or try one of the other mirrors 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 Linux-Mandrake 7.1, look for it in “updates/7.1/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, so if you want an immediate upgrade, please use one of
the two above-listed mirrors.
