Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
5 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P) March 18, 2014 March 19, 2014 May 24, 2016

Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if it is running one of the following modules: mod_dav. Review your web server configuration for validation. XML parsing code in mod_dav incorrectly calculates the end of the string when removing leading spaces and places a NUL character outside the buffer, causing random crashes. This XML parsing code is only used with DAV provider modules that support DeltaV, of which the only publicly released provider is mod_dav_svn.
