[SECURITY] Fedora Core 2 Update: squid-2.5.STABLE5-4.fc2



---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2004-330
2004-10-06
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 2
Name        : squid
Version     : 2.5.STABLE5                      
Release     : 4.fc2                  
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.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

This update fixes a potential DoS against squid that was reported by
Secunia.  See
http://secunia.com/advisories/12508/
for details.

- Modify the entry for /etc/squid.conf in this spec file to set the      
  permissions to 640 owned by root:squid.  This will protect passwords
  stored in the file from prying eyes, and close #125007
- Include the -proxy-abuse patch, which closes #133970
