Apache 2.2.x < 2.2.9 Multiple Vulnerabilities (DoS, XSS)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 33477
SynopsisThe remote web server may be affected by several issues.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, the version of Apache 2.2.x running on the remote host is prior to 2.2.9. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- Improper handling of excessive forwarded interim responses may cause denial of service conditions in mod_proxy_http. (CVE-2008-2364)
- A cross-site request forgery vulnerability in the balancer-manager interface of mod_proxy_balancer.
Note that the remote web server may not actually be affected by these vulnerabilities. Nessus did not try to determine whether the affected modules are in use or to check for the issues themselves.
SolutionUpgrade to Apache version 2.2.9 or later. Alternatively, ensure that the affected modules are not in use.
