Synopsis :

The remote web server is vulnerable to a buffer overflow attack.

Description :

The remote host is using a version of Apache-SSL that is older than

albeit difficult to exploit, may allow an attacker to execute
arbitrary commands on this host subject to the privileges under which
the web server operates.
