Subject: [SECURITY] [DSA 019-1] New version of squid released

Debian Security Advisory DSA-019-1                                                               Martin Schulze

Package        : squid
Vulnerability  : insecure tempfile hole
Debian-specific: no
WireX discovered a potential temporary file race condition in the way that squid sends out email messages notifying the administrator about updating the program. This could lead to arbitrary files to get overwritten. However the code would only be executed if running a very bleeding edge release of squid, running a server whose time is set some number of months in the past and squid is crashing. Read it as hardly to exploit. This version also containes more upstream bugfixes wrt. dots in hostnames and unproper HTML quoting.

We recommend you upgrade your squid package..

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.
You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the footer to the proper configuration.
