Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for version of Apache

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host appears to be running a version of Apache 2.x which is older
than 2.0.48.

This version is vulnerable to a bug which may permit a rogue CGI to disable
the httpd service by issuing over 4K of data to stderr.

To exploit this flaw, a possible hacker would need the ability to upload a rogue
CGI script to this server and to have it executed by the Apache daemon (httpd).

Solution : Upgrade to version 2.0.48 when it is available
