Hmm - where should bug reports for community rules go? :-)

I think that rule needs to be fleshed out. For one thing it'd trigger on
every proxy server you have, so maybe it should include a "var"
definition. Also it is specific to Squid - the following will also match
ISA and NetCache.

------------------- change ----------------
#Change the following VALID_PROXY_SERVERS to define the valid proxy
servers on your network,
#otherwise this will never trigger (e.g. "var VALID_PROXY_SERVERS
WEB-MISC Proxy \
Server Access"; flow:established,from_server;
content:"Proxy-Connection"; nocase; content:"Via"; nocase; content:"HTTP";\
 nocase; content: !"ERR_ACCESS_DENIED"; nocase; logto: "proxy";
sid:100000132; rev:2;)
