 Package : varnish
 Date    : February 17, 2014
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated varnish packages fix security vulnerabilities:
 
 Varnish before 3.0.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
 service (child-process crash and temporary caching outage) via a GET
 request with trailing whitespace characters and no URI (CVE-2013-4484).
 
 Also, the services have been converted from SysV init scripts to
 systemd-native services, which should allow for more consistent
 behavior.
