Updated squid packages fix security vulnerability

Description

Due to use of a potentially dangerous function Squid and the default certificate validation helper are vulnerable to a Denial of Service attack when processing TLS certificates. This attack is limited to Squid built with OpenSSL features and opening peer or server connections for HTTPS traffic and SSL-Bump server handshakes (CVE-2020-14058). Due to incorrect input validation Squid is vulnerable to a Request Smuggling and Poisoning attack against the HTTP cache. This attack requires an upstream server to participate in the smuggling and generate the poison response sequence. Most popular server software are not vulnerable to participation in this attack (CVE-2020-14059).
