Description

scoreboard.c in the Apache HTTP Server 2.2.21 and earlier might allow local users to cause a denial of service (daemon crash during shutdown) or possibly have unspecified other impact by modifying a certain type field within a scoreboard shared memory segment, leading to an invalid call to the free function.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-httpd
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-httpd-devel
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-httpd-manual
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-httpd-tools
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-mod_ssl

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
