        Just checked our OS/390 machine. It's running 'VSE-HTTPD/01.04.00'
and is also vulnerable. Cute bug. :)

Since I reported this "non-security" bug so long ago I hope it is fixed
through the regular set of changes. I cannot confirm this bug was fixed.
As far as I know this vulnerability was not yet reported to the public.

I can confirm that a server reporting 'IBM-HTTP-Server/1.0' _IS_ vulrable
to this. I do not know if updates increment that number or not...
