MDKSA-2005:233: apache2 Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the apache2 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:233 (apache2).

A memory leak in the worker MPM in Apache 2 could allow remote attackers to
cause a Denial of Service (memory consumption) via aborted commands in certain
circumstances, which prevents the memory for the transaction pool from being
reused for other connections. As well, this update addresses two bugs in the
Mandriva 2006 Apache packges where apachectl was missing and also a segfault
that occured when using the mod_ldap module.
