comment What is boot.servequake.com? Queries from my Server to DNS for it, caused DoS
The subdomain was in fact configured with 0.0.0.0, turning into some alias of our own machine and that doesn't seem to represent the attack source or destination. Anyway, thanks to etangenklo too, this answer is now more clear. My Server was probably used as part of an attack and I need to dig in and secure it. thanks

comment What is boot.servequake.com? Queries from my Server to DNS for it, caused DoS
That was part of my question (number 1). I wanted to make sure this subdomain is being resolved by the DNS and not configured at all (like hosts file entries). So it seems, from all feedback, the subdomain boot.servequake.com was pointed to 0.0.0.0, and therefore my confusion about this. I'm clarified now by your comments and the answer from TomTom makes sense.

All my machines resolve to 0.0.0.0 but not the Affected CentOS server. It tries to query DNS and causes DoS unless I add an entry in hosts file. thanks again

Maybe I wasn't clear, the host file had no entry, just like yours. But instead of resolving 0.0.0.0 like all other Machines, it spammed the DNS server. I realized adding this entry would at least prevent trying to resolve to any other IP. Also you are right, I meant 0.0.0.0 instead of localhost. And thanks to you, now I got confirmation boot.servequake.com resolves there and not a random "Quake Server". However, how can I put it back to 0.0.0.0?

comment What command should be used to connect via SSH through squid proxy?
Thanks NickW. Not so straightforward for other employees to configure as a command, but does the trick perfectly. Edited question with details on my implementation hoping it helps someone. Cheers!

comment What command should be used to connect via SSH through squid proxy?
Thanks, I have Checked. In that case, the goal is to access HTTP. As I have a proxy I don't need tunneling, just browser definitions for that.I do need to access SSH (over the proxy), but looks like it expects a HTTP request. Putty successfully "informs" squid we want SSH, and I get shell access over the proxy, but I can't do this with commands. [Edited question]
