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. HTTP/2 very early pushes, for example configured with "H2PushResource", could lead to an overwrite of memory in the pushing request's pool, leading to crashes. The memory copied is that of the configured push link header values, not data supplied by the client.
