Control Apache's public server information · theZedt
By default Apache displays information about itself in the server signature included with reply headers and sometimes auto-generated pages. This information can give away important clues, like the exact version number of a module or Apache itself. While obscurity never increases security since exploits can be attempted on the service regardless, knowing exact version information and running modules certainly provides a potential hacker with useful clues and eases the task.
