|Source||CVE (at NVD; CERT, LWN, oss-sec, fulldisc, bugtraq, EDB, Metasploit, Red Hat, Ubuntu, Gentoo, SUSE bugzilla/CVE, Mageia, GitHub code/issues, web search, more)|
|NVD severity||medium (attack range: remote)|
Vulnerable and fixed packages
The table below lists information on source packages.
|squid3 (PTS)||jessie (security), jessie||3.4.8-6+deb8u5||fixed|
|stretch (security), stretch||3.5.23-5+deb9u1||fixed|
The information below is based on the following data on fixed versions.
[wheezy] - squid <no-dsa> (Fix is hard to backport and default configuration is not affected)
[squeeze] - squid <no-dsa> (Fix is hard to backport and default configuration is not affected)
In squeeze's squid3 the code is structured differently but the bug still appears to be present.
For squid 2.x all versions are affected, cf. comment by upstream in
