squid -- denial of service with forged WCCP messages


The squid patches page notes:

WCCP_I_SEE_YOU messages contain a 'number of caches' field which should be between 1 and 32. Values outside that range may crash Squid if WCCP is enabled, and if an attacker can spoof UDP packets with the WCCP router's IP address.
