high Nessus Plugin ID 69014
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 is 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 2.4.x running on the remote host is prior to 2.4.5. It is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A denial of service vulnerability exists relating to the 'mod_dav' module as it relates to MERGE requests.
(CVE-2013-1896)

- An error exists related to the 'mod_session_dbd' module, flags and session-saving having an unspecified impact.
(CVE-2013-2249)

Note that Nessus did not actually test for these issues, but instead has relied on the version in the server's banner.

Solution

Upgrade to Apache version 2.4.6 or later. Alternatively, ensure that the affected modules are not in use.
