ModSecurity < 2.1.1 POST Data Null Byte Filter Bypass

Medium

Synopsis

The remote web application firewall may be affected by a denial of service vulnerability

Description

According to its banner, the version of ModSecurity installed on the remote host is earlier than 2.1.1. It is, therefore, potentially affected by a security bypass vulnerability. An error exists related to HTTP POST requests and 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded' content containing un-encoded NULL bytes that could allow a remote attacker to bypass certain filters and carry out attacks.

Solution

Upgrade to ModSecurity version 2.1.1 or later.
