Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if it is running one of the following modules: mod_proxy_ajp, mod_proxy_http. Review your web server configuration for validation. The modules mod_proxy_ajp and mod_proxy_http did not always close the connection to the back end server when necessary as part of error handling. This could lead to an information disclosure due to a response mixup between users.
