[SECURITY] Updated squid package fixes a security vulnerability



---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2004-104
2004-04-15
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : squid
Version     : 2.5.STABLE3                      
Release     : 1.fc1                  
Summary     : The Squid proxy caching server.
Description :
Squid is a high-performance proxy caching server for Web clients,
supporting FTP, gopher, and HTTP data objects. Unlike traditional
caching software, Squid handles all requests in a single,
non-blocking, I/O-driven process. Squid keeps meta data and especially
hot objects cached in RAM, caches DNS lookups, supports non-blocking
DNS lookups, and implements negative caching of failed requests.

Squid consists of a main server program squid, a Domain Name System
lookup program (dnsserver), a program for retrieving FTP data
(ftpget), and some management and client tools.

- Backport security fix for %00 hole.  See CAN-2004-0189:             
    The "%xx" URL decoding function in Squid 2.5STABLE4 and earlier allows
    remote attackers to bypass url_regex ACLs via a URL with a NULL       
    ("%00") characterm, which causes Squid to use only a portion of the
    requested URL when comparing it against the access control lists.  
- Backport security fix that adds urllogin acl type that can be used to
  protect vulnerable Microsoft Internet Explorer clients.
