Comment 4 Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2019-11-12 05:56:30 UTC

Remove 'auth_param digest ...' configuration settings from squid.conf.

Comment 5 Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2019-11-12 05:58:50 UTC
As per upstream:  Nonce tokens contain the raw byte value of a pointer which sits within heap memory allocation. This information reduces ASLR protections and may aid attackers isolating memory areas to target for remote code execution attacks.
