I have barely seen attackers actually trying to figure out the version number. 99% are directly trying to exploit known vectors using some scripts. And to get the version number there's a way simpler way, also controlled using the same php.ini setting: $ echo "HEAD / HTTP/1.0\n" | nc www.php.net 80 | grep PHP Server: Apache/1.3.41 (Unix) PHP/5.2.17 X-Powered-By: PHP/5.2.17 johannes
