Problem Description:

 Due to an Incorrect Synchronization, Squid is vulnerable to a
 Denial of Service attack when processing objects in an SMP cache.

 This problem may allow a remote client to trigger a Squid worker
 assertion.

 This attack is limited to SMP Squids using shared memory cache
 and/or an SMP rock disk cache.

 CVSS Score of 7.3

 <http://www.squid-cache.org/Versions/v5/changesets/squid-5-7a5af8db8e0377c06ed9ffbdcb1334389c7cd8ab.patch>

 If you are using a prepackaged version of Squid then please refer
 to the package vendor for availability information on updated
 packages.

__________________________________________________________________

Determining if your version is vulnerable:

 All Squid-3.x up to and including 3.5.28 are not vulnerable.

 All Squid-4.x up to and including 4.12 are not vulnerable.

 Squid-5.0.1 and 5.0.2 not using SMP caching are not vulnerable.

 Squid-5.0.1 and 5.0.2 using SMP caching are vulnerable.

__________________________________________________________________

Workarounds:

Disable all SMP caching. For example:

 * If using multiple Squid workers, set 'cache_mem' to '0' and
   remove all `cache_dir` directives from squid.conf.

 * If using a single Squid worker, remove all 'cache_dir rock'
   directives from squid.conf.
