Squid is a high-performance proxy caching server for web clients, supporting FTP, Gopher, and HTTP data objects.

A flaw was found in the way Squid handled malformed HTTP Range headers. A remote attacker able to send HTTP requests to the Squid proxy could use this flaw to crash Squid. (CVE-2014-3609)

A buffer overflow flaw was found in Squid's DNS lookup module. A remote attacker able to send HTTP requests to the Squid proxy could use this flaw to crash Squid. (CVE-2013-4115)

Red Hat would like to thank the Squid project for reporting the CVE-2014-3609 issue. Upstream acknowledges Matthew Daley as the original reporter.
