The remote proxy server is susceptible to a denial of service attack.

host may abort when parsing requests with an invalid HTTP version. A
remote attacker may be able to leverage this issue to crash the
application, thereby denying service to legitimate users.
Note that successful exploitation of this issue requires that Squid
was not built with the 'NODEBUG' define.
