updates.

Description :

The following packages have been upgraded to a newer upstream version:

this flaw to crash squid using a specially crafted HTTP
response. (CVE-2016-2569, CVE-2016-2570)

- It was found that squid did not properly handle errors
when failing to parse an HTTP response, possibly leading
to an assertion failure. A malicious HTTP server could
use this flaw to crash squid using a specially crafted
HTTP response. (CVE-2016-2571, CVE-2016-2572)

- An incorrect boundary check was found in the way squid
handled the Vary header in HTTP responses, which could
lead to an assertion failure. A malicious HTTP server

crafted HTTP response. (CVE-2016-3948)
