SUSE-SA:2006:051: 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 SUSE-SA:2006:051 (apache2).
The web server Apache2 has been updated to fix several security issues:
The security fix for CVE-2005-3357 (denial of service) broke the
earlier security fix for SSL verification (CVE-2005-2700). This
problem has been corrected.
Additionally a cross site scripting bug with the 'Expect' header error
reporting was fixed (CVE-2006-3918). The Apache foundation does not
consider this a security problem.
