The remote web server may be affected by a denial of service
According to its banner, the version of IBM HTTP Server running on the
remote host is potentially affected by a denial of service
vulnerability due to an error related to the included Apache Portable
Runtime (APR) and named pipe handling. A local attacker, using a
'named pipe squatting attack' from a local process, can exploit this
to cause a denial of service. This issue only affects IBM HTTP Server
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied
only on the application's self-reported version number.
Also note that Nessus has not attempted to determine if the 'PI39833'
interim fix or a later patch has been applied. If a patch has already
been applied, consider this a false positive.
