The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Matthew Daley discovered that Squid 3 did not properly perform input
validation in request parsing. A remote attacker could send crafted
Range requests to cause a denial of service.

description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
