Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2014-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2014-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Sebastian Krahmer discovered that the Squid pinger incorrectly handled
certain malformed ICMP packets. A remote attacker could possibly use
this issue to cause Squid to crash, resulting in a denial of service.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
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.
Update the affected squid3 package.
