The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if it is running one of the following modules: mod_ssl. Review your web server configuration for validation. An issue was discovered in the mod_ssl module in Apache 2.0. A remote attacker who forces an SSL connection to be aborted in a particular state may cause an Apache child process to enter an infinite loop, consuming CPU resources.
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.
