F5 Networks BIG-IP : Apache HTTPD vulnerability (K23332326)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 87660
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

mod_proxy in httpd in Apache HTTP Server 2.2.9, when running on Unix, does not close the backend connection if a timeout occurs when reading a response from a persistent connection, which allows remote attackers to obtain a potentially sensitive response intended for a different client in opportunistic circumstances via a normal HTTP request. NOTE:
this is the same issue as CVE-2010-2068, but for a different OS and set of affected versions. (CVE-2010-2791)

Solution

Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution K23332326.
