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 Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update includes the latest upstream release of **Apache httpd**, version **2.4.39**, including multiple bug and security fixes. To see the full list of changes in this release, see:

The following security vulnerabilities are addressed :

- `CVE-2019-0211` - MPMs unix: Fix a local priviledge escalation vulnerability by not maintaining each child's listener bucket number in the scoreboard, preventing unprivileged code like scripts run by/on the server (e.g. via mod_php) from modifying it persistently to abuse the priviledged main process.

- `CVE-2019-0215` - mod_ssl: Fix access control bypass for per-location/per-dir client certificate verification in TLSv1.3.

- `CVE-2019-0217` - mod_auth_digest: Fix a race condition checking user credentials which could allow a user with valid credentials to impersonate another, under a threaded MPM.

- `CVE-2019-0220`- Merge consecutive slashes in URL's.
Opt-out with `MergeSlashes OFF`.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected httpd package.
