Debian DLA-445-2 : squid3 regression update

high Nessus Plugin ID 89045
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

The backported patch to solve CVE-2016-2569 yielded to failed assertions that made squid3 to crash when closing connections. The fix for this CVE strongly relies on exception handling present in more recent versions of squid3, that I failed to identify in the previous update. I have reverted the patch to take the safest position, taking into account that Squeeze users should migrate to a supported version of Debian. This post-EOL update is intended to keep a functional squid3 package in the archive.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
