    In RubyGem excon before 0.71.0, there was a race condition around
    persistent connections, where a connection which is interrupted (such
    as by a timeout) would leave data on the socket. Subsequent requests
    would then read this data, returning content from the previous response.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    0.33.0-2+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ruby-excon packages.
