Apache 2.0.x < 2.0.43 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Log Injection, Source Disc.)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 11408
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 affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.


The remote host appears to be running a version of Apache 2.0.x prior to 2.0.43. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability. An attacker can exploit this vulnerability by making a POST request to files in a folder with both WebDAV and CGI enabled.

*** Note that Nessus solely relied on the version number
*** of the remote server to issue this warning. This might
*** be a false positive.


Upgrade to Apache web server version 2.0.43 or later.
