Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2011-10-08 01:08:33 UTC
CVE-2010-2951 ( in Squid 3.1.6, when IPv6 DNS resolution is not enabled,
  accesses an invalid socket during an IPv4 TCP DNS query, which allows remote
  attackers to cause a denial of service (assertion failure and daemon exit)
  via vectors that trigger an IPv4 DNS response with the TC bit set.

Accoding to this was fixed in squid 3.1.7. Moving to [glsa] with the other squid bugs.
