Apache < 2.2.14 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Log Correlation Engine Plugin ID 800574
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote web server is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.


According to its banner, the version of Apache 2.2 installed on the remote host is older than 2.2.14. Such versions are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Faulty error handling in the Solaris pollset support (Event Port backend) which could trigger hangs in the prefork and event MPMs on that platform (CVE-2009-2699)

- The 'ap_proxy_ftp_handler' function in 'modules/proxy/proxy_ftp.c in the 'mod_proxy_ftp' module allows remote FTP servers to cause a denial-of-service via a malformed reply to an EPSV command. (CVE-2009-3094)

- The 'mod_proxy_ftp' module allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions and send arbitrary commands to an FTP server. (CVE-2009-3095)


Either ensure the affected module is not in use or upgrade to Apache version 2.2.14 or later.
