Synopsis

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

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)

Solution

Update the affected squid34 and / or squid34-debuginfo packages.
