If you are using or later you could try loading the blacklists
straight into Squid ACLs please?

Marcus Kool, the author of ufdbGuard, has contributed back to Squid
several optimizations which apparenty cut down the regex overheads by a
few tens of CPU percentage points. But we have not exactly tested with
the large blacklists people are using squidGuard to optimize. So some
feedback on how that goes would be very useful.
