Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if it is running one of the following modules: mod_status. Review your web server configuration for validation. A race condition was found in mod_status. An attacker able to access a public server status page on a server using a threaded MPM could send a carefully crafted request which could lead to a heap buffer overflow. Note that it is not a default or recommended configuration to have a public accessible server status page.
