FreeBSD : squid -- Improper Protection of Alternate Path with CONNECT requests (150d1538-23fa-11e5-a4a5-002590263bf5)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 84553
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.

Synopsis

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

Description

Squid 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.

Solution

Update the affected package.
