Pound, a HTTP reverse proxy and load balancer, had several issues related to vulnerabilities in the Secure Sockets Layer protocol. For Debian 7 this update adds a missing part to make it actually possible to disable client-initiated renegotiation and disables it by default . TLS compression is disabled , although this is normally already disabled by the OpenSSL system library. Finally it adds the ability to disable the SSLv3 protocol entirely via the new "DisableSSLv3" configuration directive, although it will not disabled by default in this update. Additionally a non-security sensitive issue in redirect encoding is addressed. For Debian 8 these issues have been fixed prior to the release, with the exception of client-initiated renegotiation . This update addresses that issue for jessie.
