The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A flaw was found in the Apache HTTP Server mod_status module. On sites
where the server-status page is publicly accessible and ExtendedStatus
is enabled this could lead to a cross-site scripting attack. On Red
Hat Enterprise Linux the server-status page is not enabled by default
and it is best practice to not make this publicly available.
A flaw was found in the Apache HTTP Server mod_cache module. On sites
where caching is enabled, a remote attacker could send a carefully
crafted request that would cause the Apache child process handling
that request to crash. This could lead to a denial of service if using
a threaded Multi-Processing Module. (CVE-2007-1863)
