Apache 2.4 < 2.4.5 Multiple Vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server may be affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its banner, the version of Apache 2.4 installed on the
remote host is earlier than 2.4.5. It is, therefore, potentially
affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A denial of service vulnerability exists relating to
the 'mod_dav' module as it relates to MERGE requests.
(CVE-2013-1896)

- An error exists related to the 'mod_session_dbd' module,
flags and session-saving having an unspecified impact.
(CVE-2013-2249)

Note that Nessus did not actually test for these issues, but instead
has relied on the version in the server's banner.
