high Nessus Plugin ID 121336


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 FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


The Apache httpd Project reports :

SECURITY: CVE-2018-17199 mod_session: mod_session_cookie does not respect expiry time allowing sessions to be reused.

SECURITY: CVE-2019-0190 mod_ssl: Fix infinite loop triggered by a client-initiated renegotiation in TLSv1.2 (or earlier) with OpenSSL 1.1.1 and later. PR 63052.

SECURITY: CVE-2018-17189 mod_http2: fixes a DoS attack vector. By sending slow request bodies to resources not consuming them, httpd cleanup code occupies a server thread unnecessarily. This was changed to an immediate stream reset which discards all stream state and incoming data.


Update the affected package.
