Apache 2.2.x < 2.2.16 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 48205
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 web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


According to its banner, the version of Apache 2.2.x running on the remote host is prior to 2.2.16. It is, therefore, potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A denial of service vulnerability in mod_cache and mod_dav. (CVE-2010-1452)
- An information disclosure vulnerability in mod_proxy_ajp, mod_reqtimeout, and mod_proxy_http relating to timeout conditions. Note that this issue only affects Apache on Windows, Netware, and OS/2. (CVE-2010-2068)

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.


Upgrade to Apache version 2.2.16 or later.
