[R4] SecurityCenter 5.0.2 Fixes Third-party Library



Tenable SecurityCenter is potentially impacted by two vulnerabilities in Apache HTTP Server.

CVE-2015-3183: The chunked transfer coding implementation in the Apache HTTP Server before 2.4.14 does not properly parse chunk headers, which allows remote attackers to conduct HTTP request smuggling attacks via a crafted request, related to mishandling of large chunk-size values and invalid chunk-extension characters in modules/http/http_filters.c.

CVE-2015-3185: The ap_some_auth_required function in server/request.c in the Apache HTTP Server 2.4.x before 2.4.14 does not consider that a Require directive may be associated with an authorization setting rather than an authentication setting, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions in opportunistic circumstances by leveraging the presence of a module that relies on the 2.2 API behavior.

The 4.x line of SecurityCenter is potentially impacted by only CVE-2015-3183, and the 5.x line is potentially impacted by both CVE-2015-3183 and CVE-2015-3185.

Please note that Tenable strongly recommends that SecurityCenter be installed on a subnet that is not Internet addressable.
