Secunia Advisory SA30621

Where:

From remote

Impact:

DoS

Solution Status:

Vendor Patch

CVE Reference(s):

Description


A vulnerability has been reported in the Apache mod_proxy module, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).

The vulnerability is caused due to an error in the "ap_proxy_http_process_response()" function when forwarding interim responses. This can be exploited to consume large amounts of memory by tricking mod_proxy into sending an overly large number of interim responses to the client.

The vulnerability is reported in versions 2.2.8 and 2.0.63. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Update to version 2.2.9 or 2.0.64.

Provided and/or discovered by:
The vendor credits Ryujiro Shibuya.
