Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2001:088 (squid).
Vladimir Ivaschenko found a problem in the squid proxy server. Certain FTP
requests could cause the squid daemon to abort, making it unavailable for a few
seconds. If enough of these requests are sent in a short period of time, the
squid daemon will not restart itself.
