Synopsis :

The remote web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Oracle HTTP Server installed on the remote host is
affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in libxml2,
related to the xmlParserHandlePEReference() function in
file parser.c, due to loading external parameter
entities without regard to entity substitution or
validation being enabled, as in the case of entity
substitution in the doctype prolog. An unauthenticated,
remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted
XML content, to exhaust the system CPU, memory, or file
descriptor resources. (CVE-2014-0191)

- An unspecified vulnerability exists in the Web Listener
component that allows an unauthenticated, remote
attacker to impact availability. (CVE-2015-1829)

- An unspecified vulnerability exists in the OSSL Module
that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to
impact confidentiality. (CVE-2015-4812)

- An unspecified vulnerability exists in the Web Listener
component that allows an authenticated, remote attacker
to impact confidentiality. (CVE-2015-4914)
