According to phpinfo:

Loaded Configuration File: /etc/php5/fpm/php.ini

# grep expose_php /etc/php5/fpm  -R
    /etc/php5/fpm/php.ini:expose_php = Off
    /etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/www.conf:php_flag[expose_php] = off

# curl -I https://MyHost.loc/i.php | head | grep X-Powered-By
X-Powered-By: PHP/5.5.9-1ubuntu4

Can someone confirm this in Ubuntu 14.04?

Any idea how to get rid of X-Powered-By?

It seems there is a bug in the init script. restart didnt restarted the php fpm but didnt reported a problem either. stop & start worked and lead the no more X-Powered-By.
