Brian, a question for clarification. When you say "customized 404
response", you are not referring to a customized error document (as
described briefly in the httpd.conf file) but rather to having changed the
headers that the server returns when queried with a GET request, correct?
And wouldn't this require changing source code and compiling a custom
build of apache?
I'm guessing that you tested a server wth some kind of customized 404
response that neglected to include a charset specification. That's
not a vulnerability in Apache, that is poor site configuration.
