Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description

The log_cookie function in mod_log_config.c in the mod_log_config module in the Apache HTTP Server before 2.4.8 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation fault and daemon crash) via a crafted cookie that is not properly handled during truncation.

Solution

Run 'yum update httpd24' to update your system.
