Synopsis :

The remote web server may be affected by several issues.

Description :

According to its banner, the version of Apache 2.2 installed on the
remote host is older than 2.2.9. Such versions may be affected by
several issues, including :

- Improper handling of excessive forwarded interim
responses may cause denial of service conditions in
mod_proxy_http. (CVE-2008-2364)

- A cross-site request forgery vulnerability in the
balancer-manager interface of mod_proxy_balancer.
(CVE-2007-6420)

Note that the remote web server may not actually be affected by these
vulnerabilities. Nessus did not try to determine whether the affected
modules are in use or to check for the issues themselves.
