Updated squid packages fix security vulnerability :

Due to missing input validation, the Squid cachemgr.cgi tool in Squid before 3.1.22 and 3.2.4 is vulnerable to a denial of service attack when processing specially crafted requests (CVE-2012-5643).

It was discovered that the patch for CVE-2012-5643 was incorrect. A remote attacker could exploit this flaw to perform a denial of service attack (CVE-2013-0189).


Update the affected squid and / or squid-cachemgr packages.
