Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if it is running one of the following modules: mod_rewrite. Review your web server configuration for validation. mod_rewrite does not filter terminal escape sequences from logs, which could make it easier for attackers to insert those sequences into terminal emulators containing vulnerabilities related to escape sequences.

Solution(s)

  • apache-httpd-upgrade-2_0_65
  • apache-httpd-upgrade-2_2_25
