    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-3609
    Debian Bug     : 759509
    
    Matthew Daley discovered that Squid3, a fully featured web proxy cache,
    did not properly perform input validation in request parsing. A remote
    attacker could use this flaw to mount a denial of service by sending
    crafted Range requests.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.1.20-2.2+deb7u2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your squid3 packages.
