[cs615asa] Dishonest Servers

Hi all,

I have a question that is not in any way related to the CtF.

Do servers commonly lie about what specific technology they are using?  For
instance, say that a server responds to me with a `Server: Apache/2.2`
header.  Should I take that at face value?  I imagine it is set by the
server itself so most users will likely not alter it, however they still
could.  Is that a common thing?

Best,
Mark
