critical Web Application Scanning Plugin ID 98669
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.


Apache 2.4.x < 2.4.41 Multiple Vulnerabilities


According to its banner, the version of Apache running on the remote host is 2.4.x prior to 2.4.41. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists in mod_proxy when proxying is enabled and Proxy Error page is displayed. (CVE-2019-10092)

- An open redirect vulnerability exists in mod_rewrite when using self-referential redirects. (CVE-2019-10098)

- A read-after-free vulnerability exists in mod_http2 during connection shutdown. (CVE-2019-10082)

- A memory corruption vulnerability exists in mod_http2 on early pushes. (CVE-2019-10081)

- A denial of service (DoS) vulnerability exists in mod_http2 by exhausting h2 workers. (CVE-2019-9517)

- A stack buffer overflow and NULL pointer dereference vulnerabilities exist in mod_remoteip when using a specially crafted PROXY header. (CVE-2019-10097)

Note that the scanner has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Apache version 2.4.41 or later.
