The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200711-06
(Apache: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities have been discovered in
mod_status and mod_autoindex (CVE-2006-5752, CVE-2007-4465). An error
has been discovered in the recall_headers() function in mod_mem_cache
(CVE-2007-1862). The mod_cache module does not properly sanitize
requests before processing them (CVE-2007-1863). The Prefork module
does not properly check PID values before sending signals
(CVE-2007-3304). The mod_proxy module does not correctly check headers
before processing them (CVE-2007-3847).
A remote attacker could exploit one of these vulnerabilities to inject
arbitrary script or HTML content, obtain sensitive information or cause
a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
