 <http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2020-15049>
__________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 Due to incorrect input validation Squid is vulnerable to a
 Request Smuggling and Poisoning attack against the HTTP cache.

__________________________________________________________________

Severity:

 This problem allows a trusted client to perform request smuggling
 and poison the HTTP cache contents with crafted HTTP(S) request
 messages.

 This attack requires an upstream server to participate in the
 smuggling and generate the poison response sequence. Most popular
 server software are not vulnerable to participation in this
 attack.

CVSS Score of 9.3
