The remote Scientific Linux host is missing a security update.
A flaw was found in the way squid manipulated HTTP headers for cached
objects stored in system memory. An attacker could use this flaw to
cause a squid child process to exit. This interrupted existing
connections and made proxy services unavailable. Note: the parent
squid process started a new child process, so this attack only
resulted in a temporary denial of service. (CVE-2008-1612)
