Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:142 (heartbeat).

an shmget call for shared memory, permiting a local attacker to cause an
unspecified denial of service via unknown vectors (CVE-2006-3815).
The second is a remote vulnerability that could permit permit the master
control process to read invalid memory due to a specially crafted
heartbeat message and die of a SEGV, all prior to any authentication
(CVE-2006-3121).
Updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
