    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="normal">
    <p>Remote attackers could conduct an HTTP response splitting attack, which
      may further enable them to conduct Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), Cache
      Poisoning, Defacement, and Page Hijacking.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>All Varnish users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
    
    <code>
      # emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=www-servers/varnish-3.0.7"
    </code>
