There is only one version of squid released for CentOS-7, it will likely
never be upgraded to a newer major version .. see the backporting link

Red Hat does something called backporting:


Since centOS uses the RHEL source code, we also inherit backporting.

Therefore, even though the version listed is 3.5.20, that does not mean
that bugfixes or security updates from newer versions are not rolled in.

So, unless you want to maintain your own packages, you should stay with
the version that comes with CentOS.  Are you sure that issue is not
addressed in a backport?
