Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if HTTP/2 incoming headers exceeding the limit are temporarily buffered in nghttp2 in order to generate an informative HTTP 413 response. If a client does not stop sending headers, this leads to memory exhaustion. Review your web server configuration for validation.

Solution(s)

  • apache-httpd-upgrade-2_4_59
