    It was discovered that squid3, a high-performance proxy caching server for
    web clients, is prone to several denial of service attacks.  Due to incorrect
    bounds checking and insufficient validation while processing response and
    request data an attacker is able to crash the squid daemon via crafted
    requests or responses.
    
    This update to DSA-1843-1 includes updated upstream patches which add
    checks for a corner-case in which an incomplete server reply could
    also lead to denial of service conditions as well as more debugging
    information.
    
    
    The squid package in the oldstable distribution (etch) is not affected
    by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.0.STABLE8-3+lenny2.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.0.STABLE18-1.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your squid3 packages.
