Apache 2.4.6 Remote DoS
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 76914
SynopsisThe remote web server is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, the version of Apache 2.4.x running on the remote host is version 2.4.6. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw in the mod_cache module involving a NULL pointer dereference. An attacker may be able to specially craft a request designed to cause a denial of service.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Apache version 2.4.7 or later. Alternatively, ensure that the affected module is not in use
