The remote web server is affected by a denial of service
The version of Apache running on the remote host is affected by a
denial of service vulnerability due to a flaw in mod_ssl that occurs
when it is configured with an SSL vhost with access control and a
custom 400 error page. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a
non-SSL request to an SSL port, to cause a NULL pointer to be
dereferenced, resulting in crashing individual child processes or even
the entire server.

Upgrade to Apache version 2.0.58 or later. Alternatively, update the
Apache configuration to use 'SSLRequire' whenever 'SSLCipherSuite' is
