The remote web server is affected by a buffer overflow
According to its self-reported banner, the version of Apache 2.2.x
running on the remote host is prior to 2.2.13. As such, it includes a
bundled version of the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) library that
contains a flaw in 'apr_palloc()' that could cause a heap overflow.
Note that the Apache HTTP server itself does not pass unsanitized,
user-provided sizes to this function so it could only be triggered
through some other application that uses it in a vulnerable way.

Upgrade to Apache 2.2.13 or later.
