[DSA966] DSA-966-1 adzapper Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
DSA-966-1 adzapper

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Thomas Reifferscheid discovered that adzapper, a proxy advertisement
zapper add-on, when installed as test in squid, the Internet object
cache, can consume a lot of CPU resources and hence cause a denial of
service on the proxy host.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain an adzapper package.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 20050316-1sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 20060115-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your adzapper package.
