Apache < 2.2.14 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5196

Synopsis

The remote web server is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

According to its banner, the version of Apache 2.2 installed on the remote host is older than 2.2.14. Such versions are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Faulty error handling in the Solaris pollset support (Event Port backend) which could trigger hangs in the prefork and event MPMs on that platform (CVE-2009-2699)

- The 'ap_proxy_ftp_handler' function in 'modules/proxy/proxy_ftp.c in the 'mod_proxy_ftp' module allows remote FTP servers to cause a denial-of-service via a malformed reply to an EPSV command. (CVE-2009-3094)

- The 'mod_proxy_ftp' module allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions and send arbitrary commands to an FTP server. (CVE-2009-3095)

PVS cannot determine whether the affected module is in use.

Solution

Either ensure the affected module is not in use or upgrade to Apache version 2.2.14 or later.
