Package        : pound
Version        : 2.6-2+deb7u2
CVE ID         : CVE-2016-10711
Debian Bug     : 888786

A request smuggling vulnerability was discovered in pound that may allow
attackers to send a specially crafted http request to a web server or
reverse proxy while pound may see a different set of requests.
This facilitates several possible exploitations, such as partial cache
poisoning, bypassing firewall protection and XSS.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version
2.6-2+deb7u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your pound packages.
