Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if it is running one of the following modules: mod_proxy_ftp. Review your web server configuration for validation. A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the mod_proxy_ftp module. A malicious FTP server to which requests are being proxied could use this flaw to crash an httpd child process via a malformed reply to the EPSV or PASV commands, resulting in a limited denial of service.
