Problem description

A vulnerability was discovered and corrected in squid:

The strListGetItem function in src/HttpHeaderTools.c in Squid 2.7
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted
auth header with certain comma delimiters that trigger an infinite
loop of calls to the strcspn function (CVE-2009-2855).

This update provides a solution to this vulnerability.
