Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if a threaded server is used. Review your web server configuration for validation. A build system problem in Apache 2.0.40 through 2.0.45 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of access to authenticated content when a threaded server is used.

Solution(s)

  • 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.
