Description

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. A NULL pointer dereference flaw in mod_ssl was discovered affecting server configurations where an SSL virtual host is configured with access control and a custom 400 error document. A remote attacker could send a carefully crafted request to trigger this issue which would lead to a crash. This crash would only be a denial of service if using the worker MPM.
