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


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


- core: fix bypassing of mod_headers rules via chunked requests (CVE-2013-5704)

- mod_cache: fix NULL pointer dereference on empty Content-Type (CVE-2014-3581)

- mod_proxy_fcgi: fix a potential crash with long headers (CVE-2014-3583)

- mod_lua: fix handling of the Require line when a LuaAuthzProvider is used in multiple Require directives with different arguments (CVE-2014-8109)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected httpd package.
