Fedora Core 3 2005-373: squid Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the squid package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-373 (squid).

Squid is a high-performance proxy caching server for Web clients,
supporting FTP, gopher, and HTTP data objects. Unlike traditional
caching software, Squid handles all requests in a single,
non-blocking, I/O-driven process. Squid keeps meta data and especially
hot objects cached in RAM, caches DNS lookups, supports non-blocking
DNS lookups, and implements negative caching of failed requests.

Squid consists of a main server program squid, a Domain Name System
lookup program (dnsserver), a program for retrieving FTP data
(ftpget), and some management and client tools.
