The remote web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
According to its banner, the version of Apache 2.2.x running on the
remote host is prior to 2.2.23. It is, therefore, potentially affected
by the following vulnerabilities :
- The utility 'apachectl' can receive a zero-length
directory name in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH via the 'envvars'
file. A local attacker with access to that utility
could exploit this to load a malicious Dynamic Shared
Object (DSO), leading to arbitrary code execution.
- An input validation error exists related to
'mod_negotiation', 'Multiviews' and untrusted uploads
that can allow cross-site scripting attacks.
Note that Nessus has not tested for these flaws but has instead relied
on the version in the server's banner.
