FreeBSD : squid -- correct handling of oversized HTTP reply headers (bfda39de-7467-11d9-9e1e-c296ac722cb3)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 19108


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


The squid patches page notes :

This patch addresses a HTTP protocol mismatch related to oversized reply headers. In addition it enhances the cache.log reporting on reply header parsing failures to make it easier to track down which sites are malfunctioning.

It is believed that this bug may lead to cache pollution or allow access controls to be bypassed.


Update the affected package.
