Vulnerability Assessment Details

Apache mod_ssl denial of service

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for version of Apache

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host appears to be running a version of Apache 2.x which is older
than 2.0.49.

There is a bug in the module mod_ssl which ships with Apache 2.0.35 to 2.0.48
which makes it vulnerable to a remote denial of service.

A possible hacker may exploit this flaw by issuing malformed SSL commands when
connect to the remote host, and may therefore use it to prevent HTTPS from
working.

Solution : Upgrade to Apache/2.0.49 when it is available
Network Security Threat Level: Medium

Networks Security ID: 9826
