squid3 vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 14.10
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

Squid could be made to crash if it received specially crafted network
traffic.

Software Description:
- squid3: Web proxy cache server

Details:

Sebastian Krahmer discovered that the Squid pinger incorrectly handled
certain malformed ICMP packets. A remote attacker could possibly use this
issue to cause Squid to crash, resulting in a denial of service.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 14.10:
  squid3                          3.3.8-1ubuntu8.1

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
  squid3                          3.3.8-1ubuntu6.2

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
