FreeBSD : mod_dav -- lock related denial-of-service (013fa252-0724-11d9-b45d-000c41e2cdad)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 37996
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.


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


A malicious user with DAV write privileges can trigger a NULL pointer dereference in the Apache mod_dav module. This could cause the server to become unavailable.


Update the affected packages.
