high Nessus Plugin ID 92342
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 FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.

Description

Jochen Wiedmann reports :

A malicious client can send file upload requests that cause the HTTP server using the Apache Commons Fileupload library to become unresponsive, preventing the server from servicing other requests.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
