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

Several security issues were fixed in Squid.

Software Description:

It was discovered that Squid incorrectly handled certain SNMP packets. A
remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause memory consumption,
leading to a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
and Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. (CVE-2018-19132)

It was discovered that Squid incorrectly handled the cachemgr.cgi web
module. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to conduct
