Several security issues have been discovered in the Squid caching proxy.

CVE-2016-4051:

  CESG and Yuriy M. Kaminskiy discovered that Squid cachemgr.cgi was
  vulnerable to a buffer overflow when processing remotely supplied
  inputs relayed through Squid.

CVE-2016-4052:

  CESG discovered that a buffer overflow made Squid vulnerable to a
  Denial of Service (DoS) attack when processing ESI responses.

CVE-2016-4053:

  CESG found that Squid was vulnerable to public information
  disclosure of the server stack layout when processing ESI responses.

CVE-2016-4054:

  CESG discovered that Squid was vulnerable to remote code execution
  when processing ESI responses.

CVE-2016-4554:

  Jianjun Chen found that Squid was vulnerable to a header smuggling
  attack that could lead to cache poisoning and to bypass of
  same-origin security policy in Squid and some client browsers.

CVE-2016-4555, CVE-2016-4556:

  "bfek-18" and "@vftable" found that Squid was vulnerable to a Denial

version 3.4.8-6+deb8u3.

For the testing (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions, these
problems have been fixed in version 3.5.19-1.
