Apache 2.4.x < 2.4.5 Multiple Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Plugin ID 69014

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.
