Debian DLA-1900-2 : apache2 regression update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 128306
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.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

The update of apache2 released as DLA-1900-1 contained an incomplete fix for CVE-2019-10092, a limited cross-site scripting issue affecting the mod_proxy error page. The old patch rather introduced a new CSRF protection which also caused a regression, an inability to dynamically change the status of members in the balancer via the balancer-manager.
This update reverts the change and provides the correct upstream patch to address CVE-2019-10092.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 2.4.10-10+deb8u16.

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.
