mod_jk chunked encoding DoS Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for version of mod_jk

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is using the Apache mod_jk module which
is older than version 1.2.1

There is a bug in these versions which may allow an
attacker to use chunked encoding requests to desynchronize
Apache and Tomcat, and therefore prevent the remote web site
from working properly.

*** As Nessus solely relied on the banner of the remote
*** host to issue this alert, this might be a false positive

Solution : Upgrade to mod_jk 1.2.1 or newer
Threat Level: Medium
