So, make sure it isn't an open proxy - restrict who has access, either by IP 
address or by authentication.

If you *do* have an open proxy on the Internet, it doesn't matter whether it 
identifies itself as Squid or not - it *will* get found, it will get (ab)used, 
and you may well find your connectivity provider blocks your IP address.
