Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if it is running one of the following modules: mod_session_cookie. Review your web server configuration for validation. In Apache HTTP Server 2.4 release 2.4.37 and prior, mod_session checks the session expiry time before decoding the session. This causes session expiry time to be ignored for mod_session_cookie sessions since the expiry time is loaded when the session is decoded.
