FreeBSD : squid -- SNMP module denial-of-service vulnerability (65e99f52-1c5f-11d9-bc4a-000c41e2cdad)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 36251
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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


The Squid-2.5 patches page notes :

If a certain malformed SNMP request is received squid restarts with a Segmentation Fault error.

This only affects squid installations where SNMP is explicitly enabled via 'make config'. As a workaround, SNMP can be disabled by defining 'snmp_port 0' in squid.conf.

Squid security advisory SQUID-2008:1 explains that Squid-3 versions up to and including Squid-3.0.STABLE6 are affected by this error, too.


Update the affected packages.
