Vulnerability Summary for CVE-2010-1452

Original release date: 07/28/2010
Last revised: 01/18/2012


The (1) mod_cache and (2) mod_dav modules in the Apache HTTP Server 2.2.x before 2.2.16 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (process crash) via a request that lacks a path.


CVSS Severity (version 2.0):
CVSS v2 Base Score: 5.0 MEDIUM
Impact Subscore: 2.9
Exploitability Subscore: 10.0
CVSS Version 2 Metrics:
Access Vector: Network exploitable
Access Complexity: Low
Authentication: Not required to exploit
Impact Type: Allows disruption of service
Per: http://httpd.apache.org/security/vulnerabilities_22.html 'A flaw was found in the handling of requests by mod_cache and mod_dav. A malicious remote attacker could send a carefully crafted request and cause a httpd child process to crash. This crash would only be a denial of service if using the worker MPM. This issue is further mitigated as mod_dav is only affected by requests that are most likely to be authenticated, and mod_cache is only affected if the uncommon "CacheIgnoreURLSessionIdentifiers" directive, introduced in version 2.2.14, is used.'
