medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8343
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 is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


Versions of Apache HTTP server 2.4.1 to 2.4.4, 2.4.6, 2.4.7, and 2.4.9 are unpatched for the following vulnerabilities:

- Memory consumption denial of service in WinNT MPM, which affects installations on the Windows platform (CVE-2014-3523)

- Race condition in scoreboard handling, which may potentially result in an exploitable heap buffer overflow (CVE-2014-0226)

- Denial of service when the 'mod_deflate' module attempts to process highly compressed bodies (CVE-2014-0118)

- Denial of service in 'mod_cgid' module when certain CGI scripts do not consume standard input and thus linger indefinitely, eventually causing the server to hang (CVE-2014-0231)


Upgrade to Apache HTTP Server 2.4.10, or later.
