CVE-2009-2621

MEDIUM
New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

Squid 3.0 through 3.0.STABLE16 and 3.1 through 3.1.0.11 does not properly enforce "buffer limits and related bound checks," which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via (1) an incomplete request or (2) a request with a large header size, related to (a) HttpMsg.cc and (b) client_side.cc.
