Package : squid CVE ID : CVE-2014-3609 Debian Bug : 776194

Matthew Daley discovered that squid, a web proxy cache, does not properly perform input validation when parsing requests. A remote attacker could use this flaw to mount a denial of service attack, by sending specially crafted Range requests.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 2.7.STABLE9-4.1+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your squid packages.
