Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if it is running one of the following modules: mod_http2. Review your web server configuration for validation. When under stress, closing many connections, the HTTP/2 handling code would sometimes access memory after it has been freed, resulting in potentially erratic behaviour.

Solution(s)

  • apache-httpd-upgrade-2_4_27

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
