    Package        : squid
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-3609
    Debian Bug     : 776194
    
    Matthew Daley discovered that squid, a web proxy cache, does not
    properly perform input validation when parsing requests. A remote
    attacker could use this flaw to mount a denial of service attack, by
    sending specially crafted Range requests.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.7.STABLE9-4.1+deb7u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your squid packages.
