Squid 3.0STABLE23 / Remote DoS



The remote host is vulnerable to a Denial of Service (Dos) attack.

An attacker, exploiting this flaw, could cause a short term denial of service.


Either upgrade to Squid version 3.0.STABLE23 or or later, or apply the patch referenced in the project's advisory above.
