Medium Nessus Plugin ID 18851
The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
The squid patches page notes : A malicious gopher server may return a response with very long lines that cause a buffer overflow in Squid. Workaround: Since gopher is very obscure these days, do not allow Squid to any gopher servers. Use an ACL rule like : acl Gopher proto gopher http_access deny Gopher
