Squid 3.0


Squid-3.0 is CONSIDERED DANGEROUS as the security people say. Due to unfixed vulnerabilities CVE-2014-7141, CVE-2014-7142, CVE-2014-6270, CVE-2014-3609, CVE-2012-5643, CVE-2013-0189, CVE-2009-0801 and any other recently discovered issues.

The features have been set and code changes are reserved for later versions. Additions are limited to Security and Bug fixes

  • sourcehash Peer Selection
  • cachemgr.cgi Sub-Actions

Packages of squid 3.0 source code are available at http://www.squid-cache.org/Versions/v3/3.0/

Split Choice

As it stands, users will still need to make a choice between Squid-3.0 and Squid-2.7 when moving away from Squid-2.5 and Squid-2.6. This decision needs to be made on the basis of their feature needs.

The only help we can provide for this is to point out that:

  • Squid-3.0 has been largely sponsored by the Web-Filtering user community. With features aimed at adapting and altering content in transit.

  • Squid-2.7 has been largely sponsored by high-performance user community. With features aimed at Caching extremely high traffic volumes in the order of Terabytes per day.
