Risk: Low

CVSSv3: 3.2 [CVSS:3.0/CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:L/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2015-3455

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote non-authenticated attacker to manipulate data.

Squid 3.2.x before 3.2.14, 3.3.x before 3.3.14, 3.4.x before 3.4.13, and 3.5.x before 3.5.4, when configured with client-first SSL-bump, do not properly validate the domain or hostname fields of X.509 certificates, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof SSL servers via a valid certificate.
