Synopsis :

The remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch

Description :

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2006:051 (apache2).

The web server Apache2 has been updated to fix several security issues:

The security fix for CVE-2005-3357 (denial of service) broke the
earlier security fix for SSL verification (CVE-2005-2700). This
problem has been corrected.

Additionally a cross site scripting bug with the 'Expect' header error
reporting was fixed (CVE-2006-3918). The Apache foundation does not
consider this a security problem.
