James Kettle discovered that a request smuggling attack can be performed on HTTP/1 connections on Varnish servers, high-performance web accelerators. The smuggled request would be treated as an additional request by the Varnish server which may lead to information disclosure and cache poisoning.
For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version 5.0.0-7+deb9u3.
We recommend that you upgrade your varnish packages.
