Apache HTTP Server h2 Connection Shutdown Read-After Free Vulnerability

By GIXnews

A vulnerability in the mod_http2 module of the Apache HTTP Server could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to access sensitive information on a targeted system.

The vulnerability exists because the affected software does properly handle HTTP/2 sessions. The affected software could allow memory to be read after being freed during h2 connection shutdown. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to access sensitive memory information, which could be used to conduct further attacks.

Apache has confirmed the vulnerability and released software updates.
