A security hole was discovered in the package mentioned above.
Please update the package in your installation as soon as possible.
___________________________________________________________________________

1. Problem Summary

   Squid has a flaw in the code to handle FTP PUT commands: when a mkdir-only
   request was done squid would detect an internal error and exit.
   Squid script cannot use the restart command. Because when stop command
   isn't finished, start command is started.

2. Impact

   Vulnerable.

3. Solution

  Update the package from our ftp server by running the following command:

  rpm -Uvh ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/security/ <rpm>

  Where <rpm> is the following:

  squid-2.4.STABLE2-3.i386.rpm

  The source RPM can be downloaded here:

  ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/SRPMS/squid-2.4.STABLE2-3.src.rpm


  **Note: You must rebuild and install the RPM if you choose to download
  and install the SRPM.  Simply installing the SRPM alone WILL NOT CLOSE
  THE SECURITY HOLE.

 Please verify the MD5 checksums of the updates before you install:

  MD5 sum                               Package Name
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
8d163dfdb90a42c46a5c169b2dc0d4f4  squid-2.4.STABLE2-3.i386.rpm

___________________________________________________________________________

Our PGP KEY is available here:


 http://www.turbolinux.com/security/tlgpgkey2002-01-09.asc

To verify a package, use the following command:

 rpm --checksig name_of_rpm

To examine only the md5sum, use the following command:

 rpm --checksig --nogpg name_of_rpm

**Note: Checking GPG keys requires RPM 3.0 or higher.
