Amazon Linux AMI : varnish (ALAS-2014-276)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description :

Varnish before 3.0.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (child-process crash and temporary caching outage) via a GET
request with trailing whitespace characters and no URI.

varnish 3.0.3 uses world-readable permissions for the
/var/log/varnish/ directory and the log files in the directory, which
allows local users to obtain sensitive information by reading the
files. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third party
