Description

Squid 3.0 through 3.0.STABLE16 and 3.1 through 3.1.0.11 does not properly enforce "buffer limits and related bound checks," which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via (1) an incomplete request or (2) a request with a large header size, related to (a) HttpMsg.cc and (b) client_side.cc.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
