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

medium Nessus Plugin ID 87660


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


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)


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