Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if Apache access logs are viewed using terminal emulators containing escape sequence vulnerabilities. Review your web server configuration for validation. Apache did not filter terminal escape sequences from its access logs, which could make it easier for attackers to insert those sequences into terminal emulators containing vulnerabilities related to escape sequences.

Solution(s)

  • apache-httpd-upgrade-1_3_26
  • apache-httpd-upgrade-2_0_46

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
