Description

client_side.cc in Squid before 3.5.18 and 4.x before 4.0.10 does not properly ignore the Host header when absolute-URI is provided, which allows remote attackers to conduct cache-poisoning attacks via an HTTP request.

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-squid-cgi
  • ubuntu-upgrade-squid3

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.
