Apache Traffic Server 5.1.x < 5.1.2 DoS

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 80919


The remote caching server is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.


According to its banner, the version of Apache Traffic Server running on the remote host is 5.1.x prior to 5.1.2. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability caused by a flaw in the 'HttpTransact.cc' file related to an error in internal buffer sizing.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Apache Traffic Server 5.1.2 or later.
