Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if it is running one of the following modules: mod_log_config. Review your web server configuration for validation. A flaw was found in mod_log_config. If the '%{cookiename}C' log format string is in use, a remote attacker could send a specific cookie causing a crash. This crash would only be a denial of service if using a threaded MPM.
