New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Apache HTTP SERVER PROJECT reports : mod_proxy: Fix crash in Connection header handling which allowed a denial of service attack against a reverse proxy with a threaded MPM.

Fix a race condition in scoreboard handling, which could lead to a heap buffer overflow.

mod_deflate: The DEFLATE input filter (inflates request bodies) now limits the length and compression ratio of inflated request bodies to avoid denial of sevice via highly compressed bodies. See directives DeflateInflateLimitRequestBody, DeflateInflateRatioLimit, and DeflateInflateRatioBurst.

mod_cgid: Fix a denial of service against CGI scripts that do not consume stdin that could lead to lingering HTTPD child processes filling up the scoreboard and eventually hanging the server. By default, the client I/O timeout (Timeout directive) now applies to communication with scripts. The CGIDScriptTimeout directive can be used to set a different timeout for communication with scripts.

Solution

Update the affected package.
