initscripts: The initscripts package contains basic system scripts used during a boot of the system. It also contains scripts which activate and deactivate most network interfaces.
squid: Squid is a high-performance proxy caching server for Web clients, supporting FTP, gopher, and HTTP data objects. Unlike traditional caching software, Squid handles all requests in a single, non-blocking, I/O-driven process. Squid keeps meta data and especially hot objects cached in RAM, caches DNS lookups, supports non-blocking DNS lookups, and implements negative caching of failed requests. Squid consists of a main server program squid, a Domain Name System lookup program (dnsserver), a program for retrieving FTP data (ftpget), and some management and client tools.
initscripts: .sysinit in initscripts before 8.76.3-1 on Fedora 9 and other Linux platforms allows local users to delete arbitrary files via a symlink attack on a file or directory under (1) /var/lock or (2) /var/run.(CVE-2008-3524)
squid: A flaw was found in squid. Due to improper validation while parsing the request URI, squid is vulnerable to HTTP request smuggling. This issue could allow a trusted client to perform an HTTP request smuggling attack and access services otherwise forbidden by squid. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to data confidentiality.(CVE-2020-25097)
