Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if prefork MPM is used. Review your web server configuration for validation. In a server with multiple listening sockets a certain error returned by accept() on a rarely access port can cause a temporary denial of service, due to a bug in the prefork MPM.

Solution(s)

  • apache-httpd-upgrade-2_0_47
