Continuing the discussion from HOWTO: A+ with all 100%'s on SSL Labs test using apache2.4 (READ WARNINGS):
When i said that more important than reverse-dns is that the server is configured correctly.
And that even more important is to hide the server version, i was still aware that this does not block
all script kids. But i can say from own tests that if an server claim to be apache with old php version
you will see other attack pattern than if you say that you are running tomcat.
And also it was under the topic of A+ with 4 times 100%. You are correct that up to date versions are important.
I it is also the case with my server. I still think that many people do only look at one point there they get ratings
and get other important points out of view.
