    Several denial of service vulnerabilities have been discovered in polipo, a
    small, caching web proxy. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2009-3305
    
        A malicous remote sever could cause polipo to crash by sending an
        invalid Cache-Control header.
    
    CVE-2009-4143
    
        A malicous client could cause polipo to crash by sending a large
        Content-Length value.
    
    This upgrade also fixes some other bugs that could lead to a daemon crash
    or an infinite loop and may be triggerable remotely.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.4-1+lenny1.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution (sid),
    these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.4-3.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your polipo packages.
