How to find Apache HTTP Server instances

Updated

Latest Apache HTTP Server vulnerability #

The Apache Software Foundation recently announced a path traversal vulnerability present in version 2.4.49 of the Apache HTTP Server software. Due to insufficient coverage of potential path traversal characters in the URL, an unauthenticated attacker can read files outside of the document root and even execute system commands in some configurations. While this vulnerability (CVE-2021-41773) only affects version 2.4.49 (and 2.4.50 as a variant), it was exploited in the wild to Apache publishing their security advisory.

Update: The 2.4.50 fix was incomplete and we strongly recommend upgrading to 2.4.51 or newer.
