    The mod_headers module in the Apache HTTP Server 2.2.22 allows remote attackers to bypass "RequestHeader unset" directives by placing a header in the trailer portion of data sent with chunked transfer coding. NOTE: the vendor states "this is not a security issue in httpd as such."

    Impact CVSS Severity (version 2.0):

    CVSS v2 Base Score: 5.0 (MEDIUM) (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N) (legend)

    Impact Subscore: 2.9

    Exploitability Subscore: 10.0

    CVSS Version 2 Metrics:

    Access Vector: Network exploitable

    Access Complexity: Low

    Authentication: Not required to exploit

    Impact Type: Allows unauthorized modification

    This false positive is reported by some vulnerability scanners because the mod_headers apache module is vulnerable in versions of Apache prior to 2.2.22

    This module is not used in the Apache configuration for DataNow.

    This false positive can safely be ignored
