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.
With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
