    Debian Bug     : 696187
    
    Squid3, a fully featured Web proxy cache, is prone to a denial of
    service attack due to memory consumption caused by memory leaks in
    cachemgr.cgi:
    
    CVE-2012-5643
    
        squid's cachemgr.cgi was vulnerable to excessive resource use. A
        remote attacker could exploit this flaw to perform a denial of
        service attack on the server and other hosted services.
    
    CVE-2013-0189
    
        The original patch for CVE-2012-5643 was incomplete. A remote
        attacker still could exploit this flaw to perform a denial of
        service attack.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.1.6-1.2+squeeze3.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.1.20-2.1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.1.20-2.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your squid3 packages.
