The remote proxy server is affected by a denial of service
According to its banner, the version of Squid running on the remote
host is 2.x or 3.x prior to 3.1.22 / 3.2.4 / 220.127.116.11. The included
'cachemgr.cgi' tool reportedly lacks input validation, which could be
abused by any client able to access that tool to perform a denial of
service attack on the service host.
Note that Nessus did not actually test for this issue but has instead
relied on the version in the server's banner.
See also :
Either upgrade to Squid version 3.1.22 / 3.2.4 / 18.104.22.168 or later, or
apply the vendor-supplied patch.
Alternatively, restrict access to this CGI or limit CGI memory
consumption via the host web server's configuration options.
