Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux 2 host is missing a security update.

Description

In Apache HTTP Server 2.4.17 to 2.4.34, by sending continuous, large SETTINGS frames a client can occupy a connection, server thread and CPU time without any connection timeout coming to effect. This affects only HTTP/2 connections. A possible mitigation is to not enable the h2 protocol.(CVE-2018-11763)

Solution

Run 'yum update httpd' to update your system.
