The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200703-27
(Squid: Denial of Service)
Squid incorrectly handles TRACE requests that contain a 'Max-Forwards'
header field with value '0' in the clientProcessRequest() function.
A remote attacker can send specially crafted TRACE HTTP requests that
will terminate the child process. A quickly repeated attack will lead
to a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
