- Multiple memory leaks in tools/cachemgr.cc in
cachemgr.cgi in Squid 2.x and 3.x before 3.1.22, 3.2.x
before 3.2.4, and 3.3.x before 3.3.0.2 allow remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (memory
consumption) via (1) invalid Content-Length headers, (2)
long POST requests, or (3) crafted authentication
credentials. (CVE-2012-5643)

- cachemgr.cgi in Squid 3.1.x and 3.2.x, possibly 3.1.22,

cause a denial of service (resource consumption) via a
crafted request. NOTE: this issue is due to an incorrect
fix for CVE-2012-5643, possibly involving an incorrect
order of arguments or incorrect comparison.
