What happens when you run a chunked encoding exploit against it?  If you
don't get a response and your connection is suddenly terminated, it's
vulnerable.  I would not consider the server "safe" just because no one has
posted exploit code for it to bugtraq either.

Subject: Apache Chunked Encoding Vulnerability on AIX (RS6000)



Hi All,

I am currently pen-testing an AIX platform, which utilises Apache and IBM
HTTP
server in order to communicate with a back-end AS400 enviornment.

I have scanned the remote host with the eeye tool Retina - Apache Chunked
scanner V 1,0,3, which reports the host vulnerable.

It would appear the tool attempts to exploit the vulnerability by
attempting to
send a small request that makes a vulnerable server to become
unresponsive.

Would I be right to say that this vulnerability is not exploitable on an
RS6000
platform, given the current exploits in the wild, and the eeye tool is
again
producing false positives ????????

Any help is very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
