Problem Description:

 Due to Improper Input Validation Squid is vulnerable to a Denial
 of Service attack against the machine operating Squid.

__________________________________________________________________

Severity:

 This problem allows a trusted peer to deliver to perform Denial
 of Service by consuming all available CPU cycles on the machine
 running Squid when handling a crafted Cache Digest response
 message.

 This attack is limited to Squid using cache_peer with cache
 digests feature.

CVSS Score of 9.5

 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 built using --disable-cache-digests are not vulnerable.

 All Squid without cache_peer directives configured are not
 vulnerable.

 All Squid-3.x up to and including 3.5.28 using cache_peer
 directives with no-digest option configured are not vulnerable.

 All Squid-3.x up to and including 3.5.28 using cache_peer
 directives without the no-digest option configured are
 vulnerable.

 All Squid-4.x up to and including 4.12 using cache_peer
 directives with no-digest option configured are not vulnerable.

 All Squid-4.x up to and including 4.12 using cache_peer
 directives without the no-digest option configured are
 vulnerable.

 All Squid-5.x up to and including 5.0.3 using cache_peer
 directives with no-digest option configured are not vulnerable.

 All Squid-5.x up to and including 5.0.3 using cache_peer
 directives without the no-digest option configured are
 vulnerable.

__________________________________________________________________

Workaround:

Either,

 Add the no-digest option to all cache_peer lines in squid.conf

Or,

 Build Squid with --disable-cache-digests
