- Date Reported:
- 25 Dec 2016
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 848493.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2016-10002.
- More information:
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 client's browsing session.
For Debian 7
Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 3.1.20-2.2+deb7u7.
We recommend that you upgrade your squid3 packages.
