Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if Apache processes non-SSL requests. Review your web server configuration for validation. A flaw was found in the apr_brigade_split_line() function of the bundled APR-util library, used to process non-SSL requests. A remote attacker could send requests, carefully crafting the timing of individual bytes, which would slowly consume memory, potentially leading to a denial of service.

Solution(s)

  • apache-httpd-upgrade-2_0_64
  • apache-httpd-upgrade-2_2_17
