Synopsis :

The remote web server may be affected by an integer overflow

Description :

According to its banner, the version of Apache 1.3.x running on the

condition or to execute arbitrary code.

Note that successful exploitation is possible only on platforms where
sizeof(int) < sizeof(long), such as 64-bit architectures.

Also note that version 1.3.42 is the final release of Apache 1.3.
