Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if a local attacker can run scripts on the HTTP server. Review your web server configuration for validation. The Apache HTTP server did not verify that a process was an Apache child process before sending it signals. A local attacker with the ability to run scripts on the HTTP server could manipulate the scoreboard and cause arbitrary processes to be terminated which could lead to a denial of service.
