FreeBSD : squid -- denial of service with forged WCCP messages (5fe7e27a-64cb-11d9-9e1e-c296ac722cb3)

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

The squid patches page notes :

WCCP_I_SEE_YOU messages contain a 'number of caches' field which
should be between 1 and 32. Values outside that range may crash Squid
if WCCP is enabled, and if an attacker can spoof UDP packets with the
WCCP router's IP address.
