New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200405-22 (Apache 1.3: Multiple vulnerabilities)
On 64-bit big-endian platforms, mod_access does not properly parse Allow/Deny rules using IP addresses without a netmask which could result in failure to match certain IP addresses.
Terminal escape sequences are not filtered from error logs. This could be used by an attacker to insert escape sequences into a terminal emulator vulnerable to escape sequences.
mod_digest does not properly verify the nonce of a client response by using a AuthNonce secret. This could permit an attacker to replay the response of another website. This does not affect mod_auth_digest.
On certain platforms there is a starvation issue where listening sockets fails to handle short-lived connection on a rarely-accessed listening socket. This causes the child to hold the accept mutex and block out new connections until another connection arrives on the same rarely-accessed listening socket thus leading to a denial of service.
These vulnerabilities could lead to attackers bypassing intended access restrictions, denial of service, and possibly execution of arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll users should upgrade to the latest stable version of Apache 1.3.
