    | Wouldn't it be more accurate to say that you've released a free
    | tool which scans HTTP headers for Apache version numbers, and then 
    | reports servers as vulnerable if they report running a version which, 
    | if unpatched, would bevulnerable?
    | Now, that's a very helpful program, but it's not really the same thing as
    | scanning for the vulnerability itself.
