FreeBSD : squid -- Improper Protection of Alternate Path with CONNECT requests (150d1538-23fa-11e5-a4a5-002590263bf5)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 84553
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionSquid security advisory 2015:2 reports :
Squid configured with cache_peer and operating on explicit proxy traffic does not correctly handle CONNECT method peer responses.
The bug is important because it allows remote clients to bypass security in an explicit gateway proxy.
However, the bug is exploitable only if you have configured cache_peer to receive CONNECT requests.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
