Debian Security Advisory DSA-3522-1 security@debian.org https://www.debian.org/security/ Salvatore Bonaccorso March 20, 2016 https://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : squid3 CVE ID : CVE-2016-2571

Alex Rousskov from The Measurement Factory discovered that Squid3, a fully featured web proxy cache, does not properly handle errors for certain malformed HTTP responses. A remote HTTP server can exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (assertion failure and daemon exit).

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 3.1.20-2.2+deb7u4.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 3.4.8-6+deb8u2.

For the testing distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 3.5.15-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 3.5.15-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your squid3 packages.
