Apache < 2.0.51 Multiple Vulnerabilities
High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 2254
SynopsisThe remote host is vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DoS) attack.
DescriptionThe remote host appears to be running a version of Apache 2.x that is older than 2.0.51. It is reported that these versions of Apache are prone to a denial of service issue related to mod_ssl. An attacker may force a SSL connection to be aborted and therefore cause the Apache server to enter in an infinite loop, consuming CPU resources.
SolutionUpgrade to version 2.0.51 or higher.
