Virtuozzo 6 : squid34 (VZLSA-2017-0183)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 101414


The remote Virtuozzo host is missing a security update.


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)

Note that Tenable Network Security has attempted to extract the preceding description block directly from the corresponding Red Hat security advisory. Virtuozzo provides no description for VZLSA advisories. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
