The remote web server is vulnerable to a denial of service attack.
The remote web server appears to be running a version of Apache that
is less that 2.0.49 or 1.3.31.
These versions are vulnerable to a denial of service attack where a
remote attacker can block new connections to the server by connecting
to a listening socket on a rarely accessed port.
Note that this issue is known to affect some versions of AIX, Solaris,
and Tru64 and known to not affect FreeBSD or Linux.
