Description

A flaw was found in the handling of requests by 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.
