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 SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionThis update of apache fixes regressions and several security problems :
- Fixed a scoreboard corruption (shared mem segment) by child causes crash of privileged parent (invalid free()) during shutdown. (bnc#741243, CVE-2012-0031)
- Fixed an issue in error responses that could expose 'httpOnly' cookies when no custom ErrorDocument is specified for status code 400'.
- the SSL configuration template suggested weak ciphers.
- The 'mod_reqtimeout' module was backported from Apache 2.2.21 to help mitigate the 'Slowloris' Denial of Service attack. (bnc#738855,CVE-2007-6750)
You need to enable the 'mod_reqtimeout' module in your existing apache configuration to make it effective, e.g.
in the APACHE_MODULES line in /etc/sysconfig/apache2.
