Bug Description

From a daily mail:

Warning: Network TCP port 47018 is being used by /usr/sbin/squid. Possible rootkit: Possible Universal
Rootkit (URK) component
         Use the 'lsof -i' or 'netstat -an' command to check this.

in this case squid has a high port open, which is quite commonplace for a proxy.
