Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if it is running one of the following modules: mod_proxy_ajp. Review your web server configuration for validation. mod_proxy_ajp would return the wrong status code if it encountered an error, causing a backend server to be put into an error state until the retry timeout expired. A remote attacker could send malicious requests to trigger this issue, resulting in denial of service.
