MDKSA-2006:007: 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-2006:007 (apache2).

A flaw was discovered in mod_imap when using the Referer directive with image
maps that could be used by a remote attacker to perform a cross- site scripting
attack, in certain site configurations, if a victim could be forced to visit a
malicious URL using certain web browsers (CVE-2005-3352). Also, a NULL pointer
dereference flaw was found in mod_ssl that affects server configurations where
an SSL virtual host was configured with access controls and a custom 400 error
document. This could allow a remote attacker to send a carefully crafted
request to trigger the issue and cause a crash, but only with the non-default
worker MPM (CVE-2005-3357). The provided packages have been patched to prevent
these problems.
