MDKSA-2006:133: apache Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the apache package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:133 (apache).

Mark Dowd, of McAffee Avert Labs, discovered a potential remotely
exploitable off-by-one flaw in Apache's mod_rewrite ldap scheme
In order for this to be exploitable, a number of conditions need to be
met including a) running a vulnerable version of Apache (1.3.28+,
2.0.46+, or 2.2.0+), b) enabling mod_rewrite, c) having a rewrite
rule that the remote user can influence the beginning of, and d) a
particular stack frame layout.
By default, RewriteEngine is not enabled in Mandriva Linux Apache
packages, and no RewriteRules are defined.
Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
