Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if it is running one of the following modules: mod_vhost_alias. Review your web server configuration for validation. A security problem for users of the mass virtual hosting module, mod_vhost_alias, causes the source to a CGI to be sent if the cgi-bin directory is under the document root. However, it is not normal to have your cgi-bin directory under a document root.

Solution(s)

  • apache-httpd-upgrade-1_3_14
