Package : squid Version : 2.7.STABLE9-4.1+deb7u3 CVE ID : CVE-2018-1000027 Debian Bug : 888720

Squid, a high-performance proxy caching server for web clients, has been found vulnerable to denial of service attacks associated with ESI response processing and intermediate CA certificate downloading.


Incorrect pointer handling resulted in the possibility of a remote
client delivering certain HTTP requests in conjunction with certain
trusted server reponses involving the processing of ESI responses or
downloading of intermediate CA certificates to trigger a denial of
service for all clients accessing the squid service.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version 2.7.STABLE9-4.1+deb7u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your squid packages.
