    A denial of service vulnerability was reported in varnish, a state of
    the art, high-performance web accelerator. With some configurations of
    varnish a remote attacker could mount a denial of service (child-process
    crash and temporary caching outage) via a GET request with trailing
    whitespace characters and no URI.
