Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200903-38 (Squid: Multiple Denial of Service vulnerabilities)

The arrayShrink function in lib/Array.c can cause an array to     shrink to 0 entries, which triggers an assert error. NOTE: this issue     is due to an incorrect fix for CVE-2007-6239 (CVE-2008-1612).
An invalid version number in a HTTP request may trigger an     assertion in HttpMsg.c and HttpStatusLine.c (CVE-2009-0478).

Impact :

The issues allows for Denial of Service attacks against the service via     an HTTP request with an invalid version number and other specially     crafted requests.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
