Affected updates-testing release unpushed from updates-testing for F14,F13,F12.
See also my comments on the Security Response regarding this issue in general.
Squid-3.1.7-1 has been submitted for updates-testing which fixes this. I did not tag the update with this bug however as the bug only affects the previous test update which got pushed yesterday. If you wish then I am happy to tag the 3.1.7-1 update with this bug, but it does not seem right to say it's a security update when
a) Users running the stable updates are not affected, only users using updates-testing as of yesterday.
b) The nature of the bug in question.
