The OS is Linux.  CentOS.  The Webserver is the Apache that ships with that
distribution.  Again, pretty much the default installation.

Linux-:  2.6.18-128.el5 #1 SMP Wed Jan 21 10:44:23 EST 2009 i686 i686 i386
# /usr/sbin/httpd -v
Server version: Apache/2.2.3
Server built:   Jul 14 2009 06:04:04

I have removed cvsweb.cgi and stopped sweating as nobody has access to the
system via http right now.

Some of our admins will need such access however so any further information
would be helpful.  Even if it's "Go ask on the foobar list instead."
