Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2002:044 (squid).


Numerous security problems were fixed in squid-2.4.STABLE7. This releases has
several bugfixes to the Gopher client to correct some security issues. Security
fixes to how squid parses FTP directory listings into HTML have been
implemented. A security fix to how squid forwards proxy authentication

checked to match the address of the requested FTP server, which prevents
injection of data or theft.
