The remote web server module has a buffer overflow vulnerability.
The remote host is using the Apache mod_frontpage module.
mod_frontpage older than 1.6.1 is vulnerable to a buffer overflow that
could allow an attacker to gain root access.
*** Since Nessus was not able to remotely determine the version *** of
mod_frontage you are running, you are advised to manually *** check
which version you are running as this might be a false *** positive.
If you want the remote server to be remotely secure, we advise you do
not use this module at all.
Disable this module.
