The remote web server is prone to a memory disclosure / privilege
According to its banner, the version of Apache-SSL installed on the
remote host is older than apache_1.3.41+ssl_1.59. Such versions fail
to properly sanitize certificate data before using it to populate
environment variables. By sending a client certificate with special
characters for the subject, a remote attacker can overwrite certain
environment variables used by the web server, resulting in memory
disclosure or potential privilege escalation in a web application.
