FreeBSD : squid -- Exposure of sensitive information in cache manager (f9ada0b5-3d80-11ed-9330-080027f5fec9)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 165455



The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


The version of FreeBSD installed on the remote host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the f9ada0b5-3d80-11ed-9330-080027f5fec9 advisory.

- Mikhail Evdokimov (aka konata) reports: Due to inconsistent handling of internal URIs Squid is vulnerable to Exposure of Sensitive Information about clients using the proxy.
This problem allows a trusted client to directly access cache manager information bypassing the manager ACL protection. The available cache manager information contains records of internal network structure, client credentials, client identity and client traffic behaviour. (CVE-2022-41317)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Update the affected packages.
