Apache 2.2.x < 2.2.25 Multiple Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 68915
SynopsisThe remote web server may be affected by multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, the version of Apache 2.2.x running on the remote host is prior to 2.2.25. It is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- A flaw exists in the 'RewriteLog' function where it fails to sanitize escape sequences from being written to log files, making it potentially vulnerable to arbitrary command execution. (CVE-2013-1862)
- A denial of service vulnerability exists relating to the 'mod_dav' module as it relates to MERGE requests.
Note that Nessus did not actually test for these issues, but instead has relied on the version in the server's banner.
SolutionUpgrade to Apache version 2.2.25 or later. Alternatively, ensure that the affected modules are not in use.
