Description

The Edge Side Includes (ESI) parser in Squid 3.x before 3.5.15 and 4.x before 4.0.7 does not check buffer limits during XML parsing, which allows remote HTTP servers to cause a denial of service (assertion failure and daemon exit) via a crafted XML document, related to esi/CustomParser.cc and esi/CustomParser.h.
