    Pound, a HTTP reverse proxy and load balancer, had several issues
    related to vulnerabilities in the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.
    
    For Debian 7 (wheezy) this update adds a missing part to make it
    actually possible to disable client-initiated renegotiation and
    disables it by default (CVE-2009-3555). TLS compression is disabled
    (CVE-2012-4929), although this is normally already disabled by the OpenSSL
    system library. Finally it adds the ability to disable the SSLv3 protocol
    (CVE-2014-3566) entirely via the new "DisableSSLv3" configuration
    directive, although it will not disabled by default in this update.
    Additionally a non-security sensitive issue in redirect encoding is
    addressed.
    
    For Debian 8 (jessie) these issues have been fixed prior to the release,
    with the exception of client-initiated renegotiation (CVE-2009-3555).
    This update addresses that issue for jessie.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
    in version 2.6-2+deb7u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.6-6+deb8u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.6-6.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your pound packages.
