iPlanet chunked encoding

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for the behavior of iPlanet

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

This host is running the Sun One/iPlanet web server 4.1 or 6.0. This

server process to execute arbitrary code. This permits the potential
intruder to gain access to this host.

Solution: The vendor has released Sun ONE web server 4.1 service
pack 11 and 6.0 service pack 4 to fix this issue. Please install the
latest service pack available from Sun's website at
