high Nessus Plugin ID 57088
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 SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.


This update fixes a remote denial of service bug (memory exhaustion) in the Apache 2 HTTP server, that could be triggered by remote attackers using multiple overlapping Request Ranges. (CVE-2011-3192)

It also fixes a issue in mod_dav, where the (1) mod_cache and (2) mod_dav modules in the Apache HTTP Server 2.2.x allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (process crash) via a request that lacks a path. (CVE-2010-1452)

Also following bugs were fixed :

- recommend the default MPM (prefork) via Recommends: in .spec

- apache not sending error 304 if mod_deflate is enabled.

- take LimitRequestFieldsize config option into account when parsing headers from backend.


Apply SAT patch number 5090.
