SUBJECT: CVE-2019-0211 Apache HTTP Server scoreboard RCE Vulnerability
TECH STACK: Apache HTTP Server v. 2.4.17 to 2.4.38
DATE(S) ISSUED: 20220407
In Apache HTTP Server 2.4 releases 2.4.17 to 2.4.38, with MPM event, worker or prefork, code executing in less-privileged child processes or threads (including scripts executed by an in-process scripting interpreter) could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the parent process (usually root) by manipulating the scoreboard. Non-Unix systems are not affected.
Exploit code for this vulnerability exists and it is actively being exploited by malicious threat actors.
System administrators can patch the flaw by updating their servers to Apache httpd version 2.4.39. Developers, programmers, and system admins that use Apache should also employ the principle of least privilege to prevent threats that may exploit related vulnerabilities.
