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: 3.7

Synopsis

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

Description

The mod_headers module in the Apache HTTP Server 2.2.22 allows remote attackers to bypass 'RequestHeader unset' directives by placing a header in the trailer portion of data sent with chunked transfer coding. NOTE: the vendor states 'this is not a security issue in httpd as such.'

Solution

Run 'yum update httpd' to update your system.
