Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if it is running one of the following modules: mod_cache_socache. Review your web server configuration for validation. A specially crafted HTTP request header could have crashed the Apache HTTP Server prior to version 2.4.33 due to an out of bound read while preparing data to be cached in shared memory. It could be used as a Denial of Service attack against users of mod_cache_socache.
