SUSE SLES15 Security Update : apache2 (SUSE-SU-2020:2344-1)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 139906
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 SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

This update for apache2 fixes the following issues :

CVE-2020-9490: Fixed a crash caused by a specially crafted value for the 'Cache-Digest' header in a HTTP/2 request (bsc#1175071).

CVE-2020-11984: Fixed an information disclosure bug in mod_proxy_uwsgi (bsc#1175074).

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