Description

The remote web server appears to be running a version of Apache that is older than version 1.3.32.

This version is vulnerable to a heap based buffer overflow in proxy_util.c for mod_proxy. This issue may lead remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code on the server.
