The remote proxy server is affected by an information disclosure
According to its banner, the version of Squid running on the remote
host is prior to 2.5.STABLE8. It is, therefore, affected by an
information disclosure vulnerability due to improper handling of
malformed host names. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit
this issue to disclose the contents of recently freed memory as error
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied
only on the application's self-reported version number.

Upgrade to Squid version 2.5.STABLE8 or later. Alternatively, apply
the vendor-supplied patch.
