    Package        : squid3
    Vulnerability  : invalid memory deallocation
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2011-4096 
    
    It was discovered that the IPv6 support code in Squid does not
    properly handle certain DNS responses, resulting in deallocation of an
    invalid pointer and a daemon crash.
    
    The squid package and the version of squid3 shipped in lenny lack IPv6
    support and are not affected by this issue.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.1.6-1.2+squeeze2.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 3.1.18-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your squid3 packages.
