IBM HTTP Server 9.0.0.0 < 9.0.0.11 Security Bypass (869064)

high Nessus Plugin ID 144073

Synopsis

The remote web server is affected by a security bypass vulnerability.

Description

The version of IBM HTTP Server running on the remote host is affected by a vulnerability related to Apache HTTP Server.
In Apache HTTP Server 2.4 release 2.4.37 and prior, mod_session checks the session expiry time before decoding the session. This causes session expiry time to be ignored for mod_session_cookie sessions since the expiry time is loaded when the session is decoded.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to IBM HTTP Server version 9.0.0.11 or later. Alternatively, upgrade to the minimal fix pack levels required by the interim fix and then apply Interim Fix PH06010.
