The remote web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Oracle HTTP Server installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- (CVE-2003-1418)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in libxml2, related to the xmlParserHandlePEReference() function in file parser.c, due to loading external parameter entities without regard to entity substitution or validation being enabled, as in the case of entity substitution in the doctype prolog. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted XML content, to exhaust the system CPU, memory, or file descriptor resources. (CVE-2014-0191)

- An unspecified vulnerability exists in the Web Listener component that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to impact availability. (CVE-2015-1829)

- (CVE-2015-2808)

- An unspecified vulnerability exists in the OSSL Module that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to impact confidentiality. (CVE-2015-4812)

- An unspecified vulnerability exists in the Web Listener component that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to impact confidentiality. (CVE-2015-4914)

- (CVE-2016-2183)
