Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:064: apache2

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the apache2 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:064 (apache2).


A Denial of Service (Dos) condition was discovered in Apache 2.x by George
Guninski. Exploiting this can lead to httpd consuming an arbitrary amount of
memory. On 64bit systems with more than 4GB of virtual memory, this may also
lead to a heap-based overflow.
The updated packages contain a patch from the ASF to correct the problem.
It is recommended that you stop Apache prior to updating and then restart it
again once the update is complete ('service httpd stop' and 'service httpd
start' respectively).
