Description Pedro Sampaio 2019-11-08 19:56:48 UTC
Due to incorrect message processing Squid configured with append_domain can inappropriately redirect traffic to origins it should not be delivered to.

Comment 4 Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2019-11-12 05:45:40 UTC
Mitigation:

As per upstream:

Remove append_domain configuration settings from squid.conf.
The append_domain feature is redundant when /etc/resolv.conf  is used to determine hostnames. However, please note that use of /etc/resolv.conf may require removal of dns_nameservers and other redundant DNS directives.
