    Updated varnish packages fix security vulnerability:
    
    A bug has been discovered in Varnish Cache where we fail to clear a
    pointer between the handling of one client requests and the next on
    the same connection. This can under specific circumstances lead to
    information being leaked from the connection workspace (VSV00004).
    
    The varnish package has been updated to version 6.3.1, which includes
    many fixes and enhancements. See the upstream documentation for details.
