New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 4.4
SynopsisThe remote proxy server is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, the version of the Squid proxy caching server installed on the remote host is 3.1.6. This version is affected by a denial of service vulnerability that is caused by an assertion failure when contacting IPv4-only DNS resolvers.
Note that Nessus has relied only on the version in the proxy server's banner, which is not updated by either of the patches the project has released to address this issue. If one of those has been applied properly and the service restarted, consider this to be a false positive.
SolutionUpgrade to Squid version 3.1.7 or later
