Apache 2.0.x < 2.0.47 Multiple Vulnerabilities (DoS, Encryption)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 11788

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.2


The remote web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote host appears to be running a version of Apache 2.x prior to 2.0.47. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An issue in may occur when the SSLCipherSuite directive is used to upgrade a cipher suite which could lead to a weaker cipher suite being used instead of the upgraded one. (CVE-2003-0192)

- A denial of service vulnerability may exist in the FTP proxy component relating to the use of IPV6 addresses.

- An attacker may be able to craft a type-map file that could cause the server to enter an infinite loop.


Upgrade to Apache web server version 2.0.47 or later.
