Squid Unsupported Version Detection

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host contains an unsupported version of a caching proxy
server.

Description :

According to its version, the installation of Squid on the remote host
is no longer supported. The project developers will provide fixes for
versions as far back as those labeled 'old', but not for versions
before those.

Lack of support implies that no new security patches for the product
will be released by the vendor. As a result, it is likely to contain
security vulnerabilities.
