Apache 2.2 < 2.2.17 Multiple Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 6793
SynopsisThe remote web server is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.
DescriptionVersions of Apache 2.2 earlier than 2.2.17 are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- Errors exist in the bundled expat library that may allow an attacker to crash the server when a buffer is over-read when parsing an XML document. (CVE-2009-3720 and CVE-2009-3560)
- An error exists in the 'apr_brigade_split_line' function in the bundled APR-util library. Carefully timed bytes in requests result in gradual memory increases leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-1623)
SolutionEither ensure the affected module is not in use or upgrade to Apache version 2.2.17 or later.
