The web server running on the remote host is affected by an
information disclosure vulnerability.
The version of Apache HTTP Server running on the remote host is
affected by an information disclosure vulnerability. Sending a request
with HTTP headers long enough to exceed the server limit causes the
web server to respond with an HTTP 400. By default, the offending HTTP
header and value are displayed on the 400 error page. When used in
conjunction with other attacks (e.g., cross-site scripting), this
could result in the compromise of httpOnly cookies.
