FreeBSD : squid -- denial of service with forged WCCP messages (5fe7e27a-64cb-11d9-9e1e-c296ac722cb3)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 18953


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


The squid patches page notes :

WCCP_I_SEE_YOU messages contain a 'number of caches' field which should be between 1 and 32. Values outside that range may crash Squid if WCCP is enabled, and if an attacker can spoof UDP packets with the WCCP router's IP address.


Update the affected package.
