Synopsis :

The remote Oracle Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2017:0183 :

An update for squid34 is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security
impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each
vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

The squid34 packages provide version 3.4 of Squid, a high-performance
proxy caching server for web clients, supporting FTP, Gopher, and HTTP
data objects.

Security Fix(es) :

* It was found that squid did not properly remove connection specific
headers when answering conditional requests using a cached request. A
remote attacker could send a specially crafted request to an HTTP
server via the squid proxy and steal private data from other
connections. (CVE-2016-10002)
