- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 793128.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2015-5400.
- More information:
Alex Rousskov of The Measurement Factory discovered that Squid3, a fully featured web proxy cache, does not correctly handle CONNECT method peer responses when configured with cache_peer and operating on explicit proxy traffic. This could allow remote clients to gain unrestricted access through a gateway proxy to its backend proxy.
For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 3.1.20-2.2+deb7u3.
For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 3.4.8-6+deb8u1.
For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 3.5.6-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your squid3 packages.
