Debian DSA-3327-1 : squid3 - security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 85184

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Alex Rousskov of The Measurement Factory discovered that Squid3, a fully featured web proxy cache, does not correctly handle CONNECT method peer responses when configured with cache_peer and operating on explicit proxy traffic. This could allow remote clients to gain unrestricted access through a gateway proxy to its backend proxy.

Solution

Upgrade the squid3 packages.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 3.1.20-2.2+deb7u3.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 3.4.8-6+deb8u1.
