ModSecurity < 2.5.9 Multipart Request Header Name DoS
High Nessus Plugin ID 67125
SynopsisThe remote web application firewall may be affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, the version of ModSecurity installed on the remote host is earlier than 2.5.9. It is, therefore, potentially affected by a denial of service vulnerability. An error exists related to multipart form HTTP POST requests with a missing part header name that could allow an attacker to crash the application.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the version in the server's banner.
SolutionUpgrade to ModSecurity version 2.5.9 or later.
