Synopsis :

The web server running on the remote host has an information
disclosure vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Apache HTTP Server running on the remote host has an
information disclosure vulnerability. When configured as a reverse
proxy, improper use of the RewriteRule and ProxyPassMatch directives
could cause the web server to proxy requests to arbitrary hosts. This
could allow a remote attacker to indirectly send requests to intranet
servers by making specially crafted HTTP 0.9 requests.

This vulnerability only affects versions 2.2.x before 2.2.18 that have
backported the fix for CVE-2011-3368.
