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

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 36251


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.
