Apache – CVE-2015-3185

Description

Kayran has detected that the Version of Apache HTTP Server being used has the ‘ap_some_auth_required API unusable’ vulnerability.
CVE-2015-3185 is categorized as a ‘Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls’ vulnerability (CWE-264).

Weaknesses in this category are related to the management of permissions, privileges, and other security features that are used to perform access control.

The ap_some_auth_required function in server/request.c in the version of Apache being used does not consider that a Require directive may be associated with an authorization setting rather than an authentication setting.
That allow remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions in opportunistic circumstances by leveraging the presence of a module that relies on the 2.2 API behavior.

There’s a chance that this vulnerability will allow attackers to modify system files and information.

Recommendation

To fix CVE-2015-3185, upgrade the version of Apache HTTP Server being used to 2.4.16.
