Apache 2.2.x < 2.2.23 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 62101

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.

VPR Score: 5.9

Synopsis

The remote web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

According to its banner, the version of Apache 2.2.x running on the remote host is prior to 2.2.23. It is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- The utility 'apachectl' can receive a zero-length directory name in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH via the 'envvars' file. A local attacker with access to that utility could exploit this to load a malicious Dynamic Shared Object (DSO), leading to arbitrary code execution.
(CVE-2012-0883)

- An input validation error exists related to 'mod_negotiation', 'Multiviews' and untrusted uploads that can allow cross-site scripting attacks.
(CVE-2012-2687)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these flaws but has instead relied on the version in the server's banner.

Solution

Upgrade to Apache version 2.2.23 or later.
