    Package        : squid3
    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-10002
    Debian Bug     : 848493
    
    Saulius Lapinskas from Lithuanian State Social Insurance Fund Board
    discovered that Squid3, a fully featured web proxy cache, does not
    properly process responses to If-None-Modified HTTP conditional
    requests, leading to client-specific Cookie data being leaked to other
    clients. A remote attacker can take advantage of this flaw to discover
    private and sensitive information about another clients browsing
    session.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.4.8-6+deb8u4. In addition, this update includes a fix for
    #819563.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.5.23-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your squid3 packages.
