Apache < 2.2.12 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5111
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.


The remote web server may be affected by several issues.


According to its banner, the version of Apache 2.2 installed on the remote host is older than 2.2.12. Such versions may be affected by several issues :

- A denial-of-service vulnerability in the 'mod_proxy' module could be exploited to cause the process to consume large amounts of CPU resources. (CVE-2009-1890)

- The 'mod_deflate' module is prone to a remote denial-of-service vulnerability when large file downloads are terminated before completing. (CVE-2009-1891)

NNM cannot determine whether the affected modules are in use.


Either ensure that the affected modules are not in use or upgrade to Apache version 2.2.12 or later.
