Debian DLA-1647-1 : apache2 security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 121437

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Diego Angulo from ImExHS discovered an issue in the webserver apache2.
The module mod_session ignored the expiry time of sessions handled by mod_session_cookie, because the expiry time is available only after decoding the session and the check was already done before.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 2.4.10-10+deb8u13.

We recommend that you upgrade your apache2 packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
