FreeBSD : Apache Tomcat -- Multiple Vulnerabilities (6a72eff7-ccd6-11ea-9172-4c72b94353b5)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 138923

Synopsis

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.

Description

The Apache Software Foundation reports :

An h2c direct connection did not release the HTTP/1.1 processor after the upgrade to HTTP/2. If a sufficient number of such requests were made, an OutOfMemoryException could occur leading to a denial of service.

The payload length in a WebSocket frame was not correctly validated.
Invalid payload lengths could trigger an infinite loop. Multiple requests with invalid payload lengths could lead to a denial of service.

A specially crafted sequence of HTTP/2 requests could trigger high CPU usage for several seconds. If a sufficient number of such requests were made on concurrent HTTP/2 connections, the server could become unresponsive.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
