high Nessus Plugin ID 131148



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


Squid Team reports :

Problem Description: Due to incorrect data management Squid is vulnerable to a information disclosure when processing HTTP Digest Authentication.

Severity: Nonce tokens contain the raw byte value of a pointer which sits within heap memory allocation. This information reduces ASLR protections and may aid attackers isolating memory areas to target for remote code execution attacks.


Update the affected package.
