Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if it is running one of the following modules: mod_remoteip. Review your web server configuration for validation. When mod_remoteip was configured to use a trusted intermediary proxy server using the "PROXY" protocol, a specially crafted PROXY header could trigger a stack buffer overflow or NULL pointer deference. This vulnerability could only be triggered by a trusted proxy and not by untrusted HTTP clients.
